HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 cc50-1W
59. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make unilaterally some of the concessions he was prepared to make at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Delhi, especially as regards processed agricultural goods; if he will propose reopening the discussions, possibly through the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crosland

There will be intensive discussions in the O.E.C.D. over the course of this year as a follow-up to the work of the Second United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. The product coverage of a generalised preference scheme will be fully considered.
