HC Deb 17 April 1972 vol 835 cc11-2W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action he is proposing to take to prevent the import into this country of large quantities of foreign cartridges which neither bear indication of origin nor observe British rules of proof regarding safety warnings; and to what extent, on Great Britain's entry into the European Economic Community under present regulations, he will be able to prevent such imports from the countries of the enlarged Ten and under what conditions

Mr. John Davies

In reply to the first part of this Question, I have nothing to add to my answer on 12th April to the Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Cheadle (Mr. Normanton). We shall be able, when members of the European Economic Community, to prohibit or restrict imports from other member States on such grounds as public safety and security, and the protection of health and life.—[Vol. 834, c.185.]
