HC Deb 12 November 1985 vol 86 c101W
Mr. Lyell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received concerning the refusal of the United States State Department to permit British companies to bid for their foreign buildings operations projects pursuant to section 11 of the Foreign Services Buildings Act of 1926 on the grounds that Britain refuses to allow substantially equal access to United States firms to participate in bidding on British diplomatic and consular building projects.

Mr. Channon

In addition to the case raised by my hon. and learned Friend in correspondence, my Department has received one further approach.
