§ Mr. Arthur Latham
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he is satisfied that British manufacturers of parking meters are able to obtain orders against foreign competition, particularly from manufacturers in the United States of America.
§ Mr. Cryer
I have been asked to reply.
United Kingdom manufacturers have not suggested to my Department that they are unable to compete with manufacturers in the United States of America. However, my officials will raise the matter with them and draw their attention to the various Government schemes for assisting industry to improve its product range and competitiveness.
