HC Deb 16 June 1959 vol 607 c16W
30. Mr. Philips Price

asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent voluntary arrangement was discussed or reached with the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the recent trade negotiations whereby it would be understood that no sudden increases of timber from Russia into this country would take place, as might disrupt the market and prejudice the United Kingdom's long-standing timber trade with Sweden and Finland.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The Soviet Ministers assured my right hon. Friend that exports from the U.S.S.R. would not be sold in such a way as to disrupt United Kingdom markets.
