To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when changes in strategic export controls, recently agreed in COCOM, will be introduced in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
The Export of Goods (Control) Order 1987 (SI. 1987/2070) published today and coming into force on 1 January 1988 includes agreed changes to strategic export controls. My Department is also publishing a booklet on these controls for the guidance and information of exporters. Copies of both the order and the booklet are being placed in the Library.
