HC Deb 21 February 1968 vol 759 c137W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will introduce into the various investment and other grants made by his department an element of selectivity, in order to discriminate against the import of foreign machine tools; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Darling

No, as I explained to my hon. Friend in reply to his Question on 31st January, this would be contrary to our international obligations.—[Vol. 757, c. 316.]
