§ Mr. Jay
The main problem is not non-tariff barriers, but the failure of certain E.F.T.A. countries to give cars the tariff advantages enjoyed by E.F.T.A. industrial goods generally. I shall continue to pursue this question vigorously, and I am happy to say that the Finnish Government have now announced their intention of reducing the tariff on E.F.T.A. cars from 14 per cent. to 7 per cent.
§ Mr. Luard
Does not my right hon. Friend agree that the exceptions that are made in the case of motor cars make nonsense of the whole concept of a Free Trade Area and that it is important in the interests of one of our most vital export industries to ensure that the same regulations are applied to motor cars as to other commodities?
