HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 cc12-3W
46. Mr. Fitch

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will press for cotton yarn to be deleted from the EEC's liberalisation list during the renegotiation talks.

Mr. Meacher

The Government are committed to seeking a derogation from the EEC's common liberalisation list allowing it to maintain quantitative restrictions on imports of cotton yarn throughout 1975 and 1976. This commitment is entirely separate from the renegotiation of the terms of entry into the EEC.
