HC Deb 17 April 1962 vol 658 cc220-1
18. Sir B. Janner

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will provide a list of the applications for antidumping duties which have been dealt with during the past two years, indicating which have been approved and which have been rejected; and whether, in the case of rejected applications, he will summarise the reasons why they were so rejected.

Sir K. Joseph

Eighteen applications for anti-dumping duties have been dealt with since April, 1960. With permission, I will circulate a list in the OFFICIAL REPORT containing the information requested by the hon. Member.

Sir B. Janner

Is the Minister aware that there is a considerable amount of dissatisfaction with regard to the rejected applications? Will the reply that he gives indicate clearly the grounds on which they were rejected?

Sir K. Joseph

The grounds were announced at the time. Of the eighteen
