HC Deb 29 May 1956 vol 553 c21
32. Mr. Holt

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the result of the negotiations for tariff reductions which have been taking place at Geneva between the signatories to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.

Mr. Low

The tariff negotiations at Geneva were formally concluded on 23rd May, when a Protocol embodying their results was signed there on behalf of Her Majesty's Government and by the other countries which took part. It has been agreed that the detailed results shall remain confidential until 7th June. My right hon. Friend hopes to make a further announcement on 7th June.
