HC Deb 14 June 1982 vol 25 c181W
25. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Minister for Trade if he will now introduce selective import controls to protect manufacturing industry.

Mr. Peter Rees

No. The Government do not consider that a general extension of import restrictions would be to the overall advantage of the United Kingdom, although, as in the past, we are prepared to consider action in exceptional cases where this is consistent with our international obligations.
