HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 c137W
66. Mr. Corfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade why he made the Customs and Excise (Anti-Dumping Duty) Order 1966, S.I., 1966, No. 319, on 23rd March, 1966, to come into operation on 25th March, 1966; and why that Order has not been laid before the House.

Mr. Mason

This Order was made on 23rd March and brought into force two days later in order to check dumped imports. It was laid before the House immediately Parliament reassembled on 18th April, but it was not necessary to proceed with an affirmative Resolution because the supplier undertook not to export to the British market at dumped prices and the Order has lapsed.
