Description:
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade in the United Kingdom was a member of Parliament assigned to assist the Board of Trade and its President with administration and liaison with Parliament. It replaced the Vice-President of the Board of Trade.

From September 1953, a more senior ministerial post, the Minister of State for Trade also existed. At times, the Parliamentary Secretary post was then filled by a member of the House of Lords.

On 20 October 1970, the Board of Trade was merged with the Ministry of Technology to create the modern Department of Trade and Industry. The role of Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade therefore ceased to have practical application beyond that date. The closest successor can be found in the role of Parliamentary Under-Secretaries to the Department of Trade and Industry.

For more on the duties and appointment of the position, see Parliamentary Secretaries for an overview.
