HC Deb 16 November 1981 vol 13 c6W
19. Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he will take action to control the import of trucks into the United Kingdom.

Mr. Biffen

There are no plans to introduce import controls on trucks. But it has been made clear that we are seriously concerned about the excessive level of imports of light commercial vehicles from Japan and that we expect Japanese manufacturers to reduce the level of these exports significantly.
