HC Deb 13 January 1975 vol 884 c1W
29. Mr. Fry

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he intends to take any steps to limit the dumping of footwear from COMECON countries.

Mr. Deakins

My Department is in close touch with the British Footwear Manufacturers' Federation on the problem of imports of footwear from certain East European countries. It is already aware that, if it wishes, I am ready to consider resuming anti-dumping investigations which were put into abeyance at the end of 1973 by mutual agreement.
