HC Deb 15 December 1955 vol 547 c1389
55. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the special problems of Gibraltar will be considered during the trade talks now proceeding with the Spanish Government.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

My latest information from Madrid is that the trade question regarding supplies of fruit for canning in Gibraltar has been resolved. I am aware that there are other problems in relation to Gibraltar. These are less suitable for discussion in the context of trade talks and are better raised with the Spanish Government, as necessary, through diplomatic channels.

Mr. Jeger

is the President satisfied that the trading difficulties regarding fish have been relieved during the trade talks, as well as those regarding fruit?

Mr. Thorneycroft

I am not sure about fish. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will put down a Question.
