§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is aware that, at their meeting on 18th May, the Transport Ministers of the Six reached agreement on the adoption of common maximum sizes and weights for lorries and also agreed that France would be allowed to grant aid to her lorry manufacturers in general, and Berliet and Saviem in particular; and whether Great Britain will be enabled to assist by grant-in-aid her lorry manufacturers.
§ Mr. Peyton
The Council of Ministers has made no decisions on this matter referred to. It has simply adopted proposals which will now form the basis 119W of consultation with the acceding countries.
