§ Miss Boothroyd
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what subsidies are available for the import of castings; to whom such subsidies are available; if he will assess the impact of the payment on domestic markets; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Butcher
No United Kingdom subsidies are available for the import of castings into this country. Any evidence that imports are either being subsidised or sold at dumped prices (usually taken as being below the comparable exporting country's domestic prices), and that they are damaging industry in the Community, should be passed on to the Department of Trade and Industry's anti-dumping unit and the unit will be pleased to examine the situation.
