asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received from the Government of Hong Kong on the effect upon their trade 142W of the European Community Generalised Scheme of Preferences ; and what action he has taken.
§ Mr. John Davies
We have been in close touch with the Hong Kong Government about their expectations from the Community's Generalised Preferences Scheme. I have made it clear to the Community that in 1974 we shall be pressing resolutely for further concessions in favour of Hong Kong, including textiles and footwear, in addition to the improvements in the new Community GPS which take effect this year.
