HC Deb 02 May 1963 vol 676 c135W
46. Sir C. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the fact that duty on footwear into Canada is 25 per cent., whereas Commonwealth footwear enters the United Kingdom free of duty, what new steps he is taking to put this type of Commonwealth trade on a fairer basis and to give exporters a more reasonable chance of succeeding; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. D. Price

None. It would not be practicable or desirable to try to arrange reciprocity of treatment item by item.
