§ Q67. Sir David Price
asked the Prime Minister what progress she has made with the Japanese Government, since her return from Japan, in persuading them to adopt more reciprocal attitudes towards Anglo-Japanese trade.
§ The Prime Minister
As I told my hon. Friend on 26 October, in my recent talks with the Japanese Government I underlined the steps Japan should take so as to reduce its large trade surplus with the United Kingdom. Officials have been following up a number of specific issues in Tokyo, including possible areas of industrial collaboration. The new Japanese Government are well aware of our concern about the need for faster progress in opening Japan's market to our exports.
