§ 9. Mr. H. G. Williams
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, despite the terms of Article ro of the trade agreement with Germany and of the protocol thereto, His Majesty's Government regard themselves as free to impose quantitative restrictions on goods coming from Germany in the case of commodities other than those specifically exempted and other than those covered by a marketing scheme or other system of internal control?
§ Mr. Runciman
This point can only usefully be considered in relation to particular concrete cases, and does not lend itself to discussion by way of question and answer.
§ Mr. Williams
Do I understand from my right hon. Friend's statement that he is not yet in a position to decide whether the statements which I made on the Livestock Industry Bill are accurate or inaccurate?
