§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport what representations he has received about the road haulage agreements recently signed by Her Majesty's Government with France and Italy, and the effects of the agreements on the movement of exports by modern methods and on foreign earnings; and what replies he has sent.
Mr. Bob Brown
Letters have been received from some hon. Members, the Road Haulage Association, the Chamber of Shipping, the British Transport Docks Board, certain road haulage operators, consignors of goods, and operators of Continental ferry services. The National Economic Development Office and the Export Council for Europe also expressed concern.
I will write to the hon. Member.
