HC Deb 05 April 1965 vol 710 cc39-40W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to reduce the imports of chemical products that can be made in Britain.

Mr. Jay

The Government is anxious to promote any reduction in imports that could be brought about by an increase in domestic production on a competitive basis of chemicals that are now imported. The Economic Development Council for the chemical industry has been asked to examine this question.
