HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 c53W
Mr. Graham

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, in view of the Libyan Government's restrictions on the import of British goods, particularly foodstuffs, and the need to encourage British exports of all kinds, if he will make representations to the Libyan Government that these restrictions be lifted.

Mr. Ennals

We have received no official notification of the Libyan measures against British goods or of the way in which they are being applied. In spite of repeated requests for clarification we have received no satisfactory explanation from the Libyan Government. Her Majesty's Ambassador in Tripoli has taken the matter up with the Libyan authorities both orally and in writing and we shall continue to make representations to them.
