HC Deb 30 January 1957 vol 563 c192W
104. Mr. Benn

asked the President of the Board of Trade which commodities from which territories at present enjoy special preferences as a result of the colonial waiver under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Advantage has been taken of the procedures provided by the colonial waiver to increase the preferences on bananas and lime oil. The increases apply to the whole Commonwealth and should benefit in particular the West Indies and Nigeria.
