§ 60. Mr. Madden
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what representations he is making to the EEC Commission about the unfair competition which results from the British woollen industry's paying higher water and effluent charges than its EEC competitors.
§ Mr. Cryer
It has not been represented to me that the variations in charges for water and effluent treatment between member States of the Community result in unfair competition. However, we are currently assessing the working party report on charges for water and effluent treatment and if it is felt necessary to make representations to the EEC this will be done.
