HC Deb 11 August 1966 vol 733 c375W
32. Mr. George H. Perry

asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received from firms in this country who transact business with firms in Israel, concerning the intention of the League of Arab States to boycott them; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. Jay

None, but I have received representations on behalf of one firm already on the blacklist from several hon. Members. In reply, I have reaffirmed Her Majesty's Government's strong disapproval of any outside interference with the freedom of British firms to trade. It is for each firm to decide on its attitude to the boycott in the light of its own commercial interests.
