Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Minister of Trade and Commerce):
Mr. Speaker, I was asked yesterday if I would give a report on the discussions that took place in London and Geneva in connection with the general agreement on tariffs and trade. I should now like to do so.
As hon. members are aware, the meeting of the economic consultative committee took place in London on May 13 and 14 just before the meeting of trade ministers held in Geneva under the auspices of the general agreement on tariffs and trade from May 16 to 21. I beg leave first to table copies of the communique issued at the conclusion of the commonwealth meeting, and of the resolutions and other conclusions adopted by the trade ministers in Geneva.
