HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 c427W
36. Mr. Buchan

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will seek to raise at the next meeting of EEC Trade Ministers the adequacy of existing vetting procedures in relation to tendering from abroad, in order to prevent dumping.

Mr. Parkinson

No. Where purchasing by Government Departments is concerned, they may reject tenders submitted at abnormally low prices if the facts appear to warrant such action.
