§ Q52. Sir David Price
asked the Prime Minister what action she is taking in the Council of Ministers to ensure that all European countries implement equally the fair trading provisions of the treaty of Rome in respect of insurance, shipping, banking consultancy and the other service industries.
§ The Prime Minister
The Government continue to take every opportunity to press for full implementation in the Community of all the provisions of the treaty for both goods and services. We believe that a greater freedom of services would benefit both the United Kingdom and our Community partners. A liberalised services sector would have considerable potential to create jobs and improve the international competitiveness of Community industry which uses those services. We have, in particular, pressed for liberalisation of civil aviation, road transport, insurance and other services.
