HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 c344W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in the light of the European Commission's recent decision to impose a tariff against excavators from Japan, he has any plans to instigate action against any other imports from that country.

Mr. Channon

The European Commission is at present investigating three possible instances of Japanese dumping of imports which might lead to the instigation of similar provisional anti-dumping duties. It is open to any industry which believes that it is being similarly injured by unfairly priced imports from whatever source to request the Commission to investigate them and the Commission has the competence to introduce the appropriate remedies.
