§ Mr. Dell
Ninety-eight per cent. of the United Kingdom's low-cost imports of textiles and clothing are covered by actual or potential quantitative restraints, at levels based in general on 1976 imports and with limited growth rates. There are734W quotas for imports of many knitted items, including shirts, from Taiwan, India and Pakistan, and import licences issued by the United Kingdom are within the quota levels. But there may be discrepancies between the 1978 import statistics and quota levels for various reasons such as additional imports licensed only for re-export, or shipments arriving this year but shipped in 1977 and therefore not counting against the 1978 quota.
