HC Deb 13 March 1987 vol 112 c320W
Mr. Alton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider allocating a place on the free port steering committee to a representative of the United Kingdom free zone operators.

It would be inappropriate for a representative of the freeport operators to participate in the deliberations of the committee of officials which oversees the five-yeas research study of the six experimental freeports being conducted by Roger Tym and Partners.
