HC Deb 19 January 1977 vol 924 cc231-2W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for industry if he will make a statement upon the Commission's objections under Article 93 to the United Kingdom Government's scheme to aid instrumentation and automotive equipment.

Mr. Cryer

The Commission wished to examine the extent of the instrumentation and automation industry's problems in an EEC-wide context and the extent of intra-Community trade before taking a decision as to the Scheme's compatability with the Common Market, in accordance with the terms of Articles 92 and 93 of the Treaty of Rome. The procedure laid down in Article 93 has been initiated as a means of obtaining further information and comments from member States.
