§ Mr. Robert Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will raise with the European Commission the urgency of the request made by British bath manufacturers for an investigation under article 86 of the Treaty of Rome following the current policy of an EEC manufacturer which is harmful to the United Kingdom industry; and if he will estimate the time required by the Commission before reaching a conclusion.
§ Mr. Parkinson
I have recently written to Commissioner Vouel asking him to carry out a thorough investigation of this complaint. I shall be pressing the Commission to do this as quickly as possible.
