HC Deb 12 February 1965 vol 706 c141W
Sir H. Legge-Bourke

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will change the basis of future quotas for imported bottled and canned fruit from one of money value to one of tonnage.

Mr. Redhead

My right hon. Friend accepts that there may be some advantages in expressing quotas for canned and bottled fruit in terms of weight rather than value. These quotas are however subject to negotiation, and a balance of mutual advantage has to be struck. My right hon. Friend could not therefore give any undertaking to introduce this change, but will certainly keep the point in mind.
