HC Deb 07 December 1971 vol 827 cc268-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the fact that Her Majesty's Government are considering the draft directives issued by the Commission of the European Economic Community designed inter alia to secure the mutual recognition in Community countries of the qualifications of tax consultants and other professional persons engaged in tax work, he will give an assurance that he will discuss the subject with the recognised professional bodies in Great Britain before agreeing to them or taking any irrevocable steps with the European Economic Community.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin
