HC Deb 19 March 1982 vol 20 c212W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what has been the effect of the measures introduced on 1 January 1981 under the Trade Descriptions Act in regard to the imports of seal products.

Dr. Vaughan

It is too early to attempt an assessment. The Trade Descriptions (Sealskin Goods) (Information) Order 1980 has been in force for only a year, and statistics on sealskin imports are as yet available for only eight month of 1981.
