HC Deb 18 March 1958 vol 584 cc113-4W
3. Mr. Hurd

asked the President of the Board of Trade in how many cases antidumping duties have so far been imposed under the Customs Duties (Dumping and Subsidies) Act, 1957; which commodities are concerned; and in how many more cases inquiries are now being pursued on evidence of complaint.

Sir D. Eccles

One, on silicone fluids manufactured by a particular firm in France.

Applications for duties in respect of lighter flints from Germany and Austria, aluminium from the Soviet Union and butter from Finland, Sweden, the Irish Republic and Austria have been advertised and are being examined.

Nine other applications for antidumping or countervailing duties are under preliminary examination, but it would not be appropriate to give details of them at this stage.
