HC Deb 07 February 1984 vol 53 c525W
Mr. Waller

asked the Secretary of State for Government Trade and Industry if he will protest to the United States about the decision to widen the definition of "ornamented" garments subject to higher rates of import tariff than garments not so included; and if he will stress the detrimental effect of this decision for the United Kingdom clothing industry.

Mr. Channon

Yes. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is at present in the United States and will have an opportunity to raise this matter.
