HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 cc194-5W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Minister for Trade whether he will seek to ban the import of high speed tape copiers on the grounds that their use could infringe the terms of the Copyright Act 1956.

Dr. Vaughan

No. A ban on the import of high-speed tape copiers because their use could infringe copyright would not be possible under our EEC and GATT obligations.
