HC Deb 05 July 1961 vol 643 c125W
73. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport what investigations he has made into the effect which Great Britain's entry into the Common Market will have on the British shipbuilding and ship-repairing industries.

Mr. Marples

For most ships and ships' equipment no tariffs are imposed by this country or by the Six so that entry into the Common Market would affect these industries only indirectly through its effect on our economy as a whole.
