§ Dame Joan Vickers
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether Her Majesty's Government accept Resolution No. 488 on European 79W economic problems, trade relations between the United States of America and the European Communities, which was adopted by the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe on 14th May, 1971; and whether they will make the declaration mentioned in paragraph 6 of this resolution.
§ Mr. Noble
This Resolution has been noted with approval by Her Majesty's Government who are in full agreement with the need for maintenance and development of liberal policies for the growth of world trade and for the restraint of protectionism. Indeed, within the O.E.C.D., and with the full approval of ourselves and the Community, a high-level working group is being established to examine moves towards liberalisation in world trade.
