HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 cc34-5W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what meetings have been held with the USSR under the 1968–69 trade agreement; and with what result.

Mr. Meacher

The Long Term Trade Agreement of 3rd June 1969 provided for an annual review at official level to examine the implementation of the provisions of the agreement. Five such reviews were held before the agreement was terminated at the end of 1975. These reviews provided opportunities to discuss the development of trade and any problems arising.
