HC Deb 19 December 1983 vol 51 cc96-7W
Mr. Tim Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the Government's policy on the renewal of the United States Export Administration Act.

Mr. Channon

It remains the Government's policy to urge upon the United States Administration and the United States Congress the political, economic and legal arguments against the extraterritorial application of the present Export Administration Act; and to encourage our Community partners and others to do likewise.
