HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 cc325-6W
Mr. Wyn Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what investigations have been carried out recently by his Department into allegations of dumping of prefabricated aluminium; and with what results.

Mr. Anthony Grant

In June this year we completed an anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of certain aluminium semi-manufactures from Austria, Belgium, Italy, Norway and Sweden. We found that these imports were not being dumped at the time of our investigations in early-1971. We made it clear, however, that it would be open to the British industry to make a further application if at any time they had reason to believe that dumping was taking place.
