HC Deb 28 November 1963 vol 685 c99W
37. Mr. Wade

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development whether he will initiate conversations in the Council of Association with members of the European Coal and Steel Community on the question of steel exports, in order to ensure that the recent high level British steel exports will not lead to retaliatory increases; and whether, as a first step, he will consider harmonising the British tariff with those of the Common Market countries.

Mr. Heath

This subject has already been discussed in the Council of Association. Harmonising the British steel tariff with those of members of the Community would not significantly affect the Community's problem.
