HC Deb 02 December 1981 vol 14 cc114-5W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Trade (1) if in view of the threatened dislocation of the British electric lamp market likely to be caused by the coming into production of the Tunsgram manufacturing plant in Cork, with a capacity of 30 million lamps a year, he will enter into negotiations with the Government of the Republic of Ireland to secure a voluntary limitation of imports of lamps into the United Kingdom;

(2) if he will investigate whether the Tunsgram electric lamp manufacturing plant in Cork is dumping electric lamps on the British market.

Mr. Peter Rees

I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
