§ Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what progress has been made in processing with the European Commission of an anti-dumping application from Taiwan.
§ Mr. Parkinson
I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the Community producers' anti-dumping complaint 671W against external wooden doors from Taiwan. I understand that after due consultation the EC Commission has decided that the complainants have not so far provided sufficient evidence of dumping in their complaint to justify initiating a formal investigation. The Commission is in process of informing the complainants of this.
