HC Deb 07 July 1959 vol 608 c116W
72. Mr. Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the concern felt by the paper and board industry, especially in Scotland, as to the effect of the possible establishment of the Little Free Trade Area; and whether he will make a statement of Government policy in this respect.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I have been asked to reply.

I am very well aware of this industry's views which the Government will take fully into account together with those of other British industries. As regards the possibility of establishing a Free Trade Area of the Seven countries, a report was prepared by officials at a meeting in Stockholm last month and is now being considered by Ministers in each of the countries.
