HC Deb 10 December 1986 vol 107 c185W
Mr. Ashdown

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what were the points of principle he raised in his formal protest to the United States on 26 June; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alan Clark

The Government's protest was concerned with our objections to United States extraterritorial re-export regulations and the action taken against Systime plc under those regulations.
