HC Deb 07 March 1986 vol 93 c291W
Mr. Haynes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he supports the European Commission proposal to introduce the switching between the European Commission member states of multi-fibre arrangement quotas.

Mr. Alan Clark

I consider that it is necessary to introduce some greater degree of flexibility between the quotas of individual member states than in the past, taking into account the pressure for such flexibility from developing countries and the need to move towards the creation of an internal market.
