§ 20. Mr. Hayman
asked the President of the Board of Trade in what ways the new General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade will benefit the horticultural industry.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
No amendments have been made to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade which have particular reference to horticulture. The hon. Member will, however, recall that under a waiver which I obtained in 1953, and which has now been somewhat extended, I was able, after appropriate inquiry, to introduce a number of tariff increases of benefit to the horticultural industry.
