HC Deb 10 February 1986 vol 91 c361W
Mr. Fatchett

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action his Department proposes to take to control the level of importation of men's cheap suits; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alan Clark

Imports of men's suits from a number of state trading and developing exporting countries are subject to quantitative restrictions under bilateral arrangements. I have recently received representations from the United Kingdom industry about the very low prices of imports from one state trading country in particular, and my Department has already drawn this to the attention of the European Commission.
