HC Deb 12 July 1955 vol 543 c168W
100. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what arrangements have been made with the Federal Government of Germany for British Forces in Germany to enjoy the facilities of cheap petrol, special travel concessions on German railways, and duty-free facilities from the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes, all of which privileges were available to them while serving as occupation troops.

Mr. Turton

Members of the Forces at present enjoy the same facilities as they had before 5th May. Cheap petrol and duty-free facilities for N.A.A.F.I. will continue at least until the conclusion of the further agreement provided for in Article 8 of the Convention on Relations between the Three Powers and the Federal Republic. Negotiations are expected to start in the autumn. Negotiation of a new railway tariff for the Forces in Germany has just begun.
