HC Deb 23 December 1976 vol 923 cc283-4W
Mr. Hodgson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what progress has been made on the international harmonisation of tariffs on wrought titanium.

Mr. Meacher

Discussions are continuing in the GATT multilateral trade negotiations on proposals for tariff reductions, including a proposal from the EEC which would effect a substantial degree of harmonisation. It is hoped to conclude the negotiations by the end of 1977.
