HC Deb 26 November 1959 vol 614 cc56-7W
62. Mr. Hendry

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether in view of the fact that it costs more to send paper from Scotland to London by rail than from Sweden to London by sea, he will consult with the British Transport Corn-mission regarding the early introduction of a flat rate for the carriage of paper within the United Kingdom, so as to ensure the continued prosperity of the Scottish paper-making industry after the Outer Seven Free Trade Area comes into force.

Mr. Maudling
