HC Deb 29 June 1971 vol 820 cc105-6W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what survey the Government has now made of United Kingdom industries to show those which could now expect to benefit within an enlarged European Economic Community and those which could not.

Mr. Noble

Internal analyses have been made and industry has been consulted. Such studies cannot show conclusively what the benefits would be industry by industry, since so much would depend on the enterprise of managements in the new and stimulating environment. Overall the outlook is encouraging.
