§ 14. Mr. Oliver
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the working of the Schuman Plan upon the British economy of coalmining and the iron and steel trades.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
It is too early to detect any effects of the working of the European Coal and Steel Community on British coalmining and the iron and steel trades.
§ Mr. Oliver
Could the right hon. Gentleman say whether any proposal has been received from the Coal and Steel Community asking for a permanent and institutional liaison?
§ Mr. Butler
We understood that M. Monnet was going to make proposals to us for more formal consultation, but we are still awaiting these proposals.
