§ Sir Richard Body
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what consultation he had with consumer organisations before the recent GATT mid-term review in Montreal; and if there are to be any consultations with such groups as a result of the breakdown of the review.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
My officials regularly consult consumer organisations about the GATT round of trade negotiations. Such a meeting was held shortly before the Montreal mid-term ministerial meeting and another will take place next week.
