§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Minister for Trade if he will give details of the current voluntary restraint agreements with Japan concerning the import of cars, light commercial vehicles, pottery, cutlery, colour and portable monochrome television sets, and music centres; and if he has plans for further such agreements.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
Details of existing or future voluntary restraints applied by Japanese industries to their exports are matters for discussion between them and their British counterparts. My Department keeps a careful watch on the effectiveness of such discussions.
