HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c221W
49. Dr. Gray

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will seek to implement the recommendation in the report of the Textile Council that a tariff of 15 per cent. on duty-free cotton textile imports should be imposed to replace the present import quotas.

Mr. Crosland

I have told the Textile Council that this is a far-reaching proposal which the Government will have to consider with great care in the light of their various obligations.
