HC Deb 17 November 1971 vol 826 c147W
64. Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the likely effect upon the Welsh horticultural industry of entry by the United Kingdom into the European Economic Community.

Mr. Peter Thomas

I would not expect the effects on Welsh horticulture to differ from those on horticulture in the rest of the United Kingdom. The special transitional arrangements secured for horticulture should assist growers to adapt to the new conditions arising from our membership.
