HC Deb 09 May 1963 vol 677 cc83-4W
Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give an assurance that the present Commonwealth preference on butter entering the United Kingdom from New Zealand and Australia will remain unaltered as a result of the forthcoming negotiations with Denmark and other foreign countries.

Mr. D. Price

Under our trade agreements with New Zealand and Australia we are precluded from altering the butter preference without their agreement.
