asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to give the names and qualifications of the persons appointed as trade advisers in New York, New Orleans, Chicago and San Francisco.
The Trade Adviser in New York has been appointed. He is Mr. C. D. McCarthy, who has had business experience in oil, transport and finance. He has a good war record and has travelled extensively in the United States. I hope to be in a position to announce the names of the other three in a few days' time, and I will send particulars to the hon. Member.
