HC Deb 25 October 1962 vol 664 c216W
Mr. K. Thompson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he proposes to take in trade negotiations with certain eastern European countries to protect the livelihood of Merseyside workers in the rubber footwear industry.

Mr. Erroll

In considering requests from Eastern Area countries for quotas to sell us rubber footwear, I shall keep in mind the position of the manufacturing industry in Merseysida and elsewhere.
