asked the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has for increasing the staff of the United Kingdom Trade Commissioner in Canada.

The staff needs of the Trade Commissioner offices in Canada are kept under constant review, and two additional Assistant Trade Commissioners have been sent to Canada this year.

Is the President sure that that is enough staff to tackle the enormous problems which confront us in this dollar market, which is becoming even more important in view of the trend in the United States as shown by recent tariff changes?

I think so. Only recently I had a good opportunity of seeing how our Trade Commissioners work but I am fully alive to this matter and am keeping it under review. If any additional staff is necessary I will see that it is made available.
