HC Deb 21 October 1985 vol 84 cc16-7W
Mr. Oakes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assessment he has made of the implications of the introduction of a tape levy for the level of counterfeit tape imports, both of stamped or unstamped tapes.

Mr. Butcher

The decision whether or not to introduce a copyright levy on blank recording tape will take account of all relevant factors, including the question of counterfeit blank tape imports. We hope soon to publish our conclusions on the levy, and other matters of copyright reform, in a White Paper.
