HC Deb 04 November 1954 vol 532 c77W
84. Mr. Russell

asked the President of the Board of Trade which individual industries, or representative of industry, were consulted before a decision was reached on the policy to be adopted towards the revision of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Besides discussing particular aspects from time to time with particular industries, I have discussed the general lines of the policy we shall adopt in this matter with organisations representing comprehensively our trade, manufacturing industry and agriculture and the trade union movement.
