HC Deb 18 November 1954 vol 533 c69W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the details of the instances of export subsidies on fruit, which were reported to him by his official observer at last year's Commonwealth Fruits Conference; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Detailed information about export subsidies was placed before a sub-committee of the conference, but was not circulated to the conference as a whole. The Board of Trade observer, therefore, did not receive this information.
