HC Deb 19 July 1967 vol 750 c256W
51. Mr. Iremonger

asked the President of the Board of Trade what information he has about the provision of subsidies by the West German Government to exporters to the European Free Trade Association countries.

Mr. Jay

I know of no such subsidies limited to exporters to E.F.T.A. countries. Under the Common Agricultural Policy of the E.E.C., certain agricultural products are subsidised when exported to countries outside the Community, and there are special arrangements to assist the export of ships built in German yards to industrial countries outside the E.E.C.
