§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what advice has been tendered by his Department's anti-dumping unit regarding the possible dumping of timber or timber pulp into the United Kingdom to the detriment of the United Kingdom forestry industry.670W
§ Mr. Parkinson
The United Kingdom forestry industry has made no approach to my Department for advice on this matter. From the timber industry one company in Scotland has recently alleged dumping of sawn timber. The anti-dumping unit is ready to give advice to that company and to others in the industry on how to proceed with an anti-dumping complaint to the EC Commission, if they so wish.
