§ Mr. Alan Clark
18,025 tonnes of White Portland cement were imported from Greece in August 1986. There are no indications that much of this has yet found its way on to the market. There have been no other imports of cement from Greece in the last 12 months. on the future of the Greek subsidies, I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mr. Hunter) on 10 December, at column 175.
