asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps have been taken by the Governments of France and Germany to deal with the dumping of Russian cereals in their countries?
I have been asked to reply. By a Decree issued on 3rd October, the importation into France of cereals (and certain other goods) originating in or coming from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is made dependent on the grant of a licence. A special committee has been set up to control the issue of such licences. I am not aware of any steps, directed specifically against Russian goods, having been taken by the German Government.
