§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth 87W Affairs to what extent the Commercial Co-operation Agreement between EEC and India involves immediate trade concessions to India, other than those in the final EEC generalised system of preferences for 1974.
§ Sir G. Howe
I have been asked to reply.
Tariff reductions in addition to those incorporated in the Community's generalised preference scheme for 1974 were contained in the recent jute textiles agreement. The Commercial Co-operation Agreement was designed to provide the framework for further reduction of trade barriers in the future.
