HC Deb 03 March 1975 vol 887 cc297-8W
28. Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will take action to stop increases in United Kingdom duty-free import quotas from Turkey in cotton yarn, other cotton woven fabrics, knotted carpets, carpeting and rugs, as proposed by the EEC under Draft Instrument S/196/75.

Mr. Deakins

No. These small increases are intended to give Turkey no less favourable treatment than other developing countries under the EEC's Generalised System of Tariff Preferences for which similar 5 per cent. increases have been made in tariff quotas for 1975.
