§ 10. Mr. Henig
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what is Her Majesty's Government's policy towards the preferential trading arrangements which have been, or are being, negotiated by members of the Commonwealth with the European Economic Community, in so far as the interests of this country and the Commonwealth are concerned.
§ Mrs. Hart
Her Majesty's Government would naturally welcome arrangements which improved the terms on which developing Commonwealth countries could sell their products in the European Economic Community, provided that these Commonwealth countries were not required to give the Community, in return, trade concessions which were denied to Britain and other third countries.
