OUTLETS FOR BRITISH TRADE.
Tho following circular, which explains itself, is being forwarded to merchants throughout the Dominion :
Many British manufacturers are now’ shut off from tlioir market on the Continent of Europe, and are anxious, therefore, to find fresh outlets for their goods. On the other hand, many articles hitherto supplied largely both to the United Kingdom and toreigu markets by Germany and Austria arc now being, and will as time goes on to an increas-
ing extent be, manufactured in the United Kingdom. The Commercial Intelligence Branch of the Board of Trade is working with a double staff to focus information on these points and bring buyers and sellers together. Exhibitions are being organised trade by trade, samples of foreign goods in demand being arranged for manufacturers to study with a view to meeting the de-
m-m i. Importers will find it to their advantage to instruct their buying agents in London to get in touch with tlie Board of Trade, at 73 Basinghall street, E.C., and submit samples or particulars of any and every class of goods reqiiircd. They will find that tho Board of Trade have a very much more intimate knowledge of where goods are being and can bo made (ban they have in the past been ready to believe. By doing so they will in a practical way assist in the good object of relieving distress and maintaining employment in the United Kingdom during the winter. Importers not having brandies or buying agents in' London are invited to send to tho Trade Commissioners at Wellington, for transmission to London, full information (not samples) as to goods previously bought from Germany and Austria, if possible with f.o.b. prices, which they wish In buy from United Kingdom manufacturers.
