HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 c233W
56. Mr. Bottomley

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement concerning the representations made to him by the British Glace Kid Tanners Association regarding substantial imports of subsidised kid leather from Germany.

Mr. Low

I would refer the right hon. Gentleman to the reply given to his Question on 15th March. Before the ending of the German subsidy scheme, the Glacé Kid Tanners Association made various representations about subsidised imports of German kid leathers. Under the Butler-Erhard agreement of May, 1954, the sole remaining artificial aid to exports in Germany came to an end on 31st December. 1955.
