HC Deb 04 February 1985 vol 72 c396W
Mr. Batiste

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, before making the export control order giving effect to the recent COCOM agreement he will first publish for consultation a draft of the proposed order.

Mr. Channon

No, but in view of the considerable interest about the details of the proposed new Export of Goods (Control) Order, I intend to allow a period of at least three weeks between publication of the order and its entry into force.
