HC Deb 23 May 1966 vol 729 c1W
10. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made towards the association of Yugoslavia with the European Free Trade Association.

Mr. George Thomson

The E.F.T.A. Ministers last October accepted the Yugoslav Government's request for exploratory talks with a view to improving trade relations with E.F.T.A. countries. The Yugoslav Government have not suggested association with E.F.T.A. Further talks have taken place and the next round will be in June.
