Does the right hon. Gentleman know of the success of the trade mission to Australia recently? Why will he not not make preparations so that we may have similar success in Canada? Is he aware that the United Kingdom site at Montreal is extremely good? Does he recognise the wealth of good will towards Scotland by Canadian people?

I welcome the spirit of the hon. Member's Question about the Canadian Centenary Exhibition, but he will appreciate that this is a cultural and prestige exhibition. It is not related to trade at all; in fact, commercial exhibitions there are forbidden. But he should not take it that we overlook the importance of this, or, indeed, that we are overlooking the question of having commercial participation by Scotland in trade fairs at that time.
