HC Deb 25 January 1984 vol 52 cc565-6W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take steps to ensure that motor vehicles currently labelled as "British" have a given minimum content of British labour or national content therein.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

I have no plans to do so. A new legal requirement of the kind that my hon. Friend envisages, which would be inconsistent with the general rule determining the origin of cars and other goods for the purposes of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968, would present serious practical problems of definition and enforcement.
