asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the United Kingdom industrial delegation to Burma has yet submitted a report on its work; and when it will be published.
Yes. The Delegation has reported to me, and its Report will be published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office on 24th May. I take this opportunity to record appreciation of the valuable service rendered both to the Government and to British industry by Lord Burghley and his colleagues.
