asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will arrange for an increase in secretarial facilities for the Export Promotion Department of the Board of Trade, in view of the fact that much of their correspondence has to be sent out of London for typing, which results in unnecessary delay, sometimes amounting to weeks, in dealing with British exporters' inquiries.
