HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 cc352-3W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade how advanced the Commission's proposals are for a directive to control the financial operations of State corporations in relation to the fair competition rules of the Treaty of Rome.

Mr. Les Huckfield

I have been asked to reply.

I understand that the Commission is preparing a directive to introduce rules to assist it to check that member States operating through public undertakings and the undertakings themselves are complying with the Treaty. There is no indication that its appearance is imminent.
