HC Deb 14 December 1961 vol 651 cc64-5W
48. Mr. Dempsey

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that pocket transistor radios imported from Japan are being sold in this country at approximately £4 less than the standard price for the same article produced in the United Kingdom; and what action he proposes to take to protect the home industry.

Mr. Erroll

The home industry is protected by a duty of 20 per cent. and by a quota limitation on imports from Japan.
