HC Deb 05 March 1987 vol 111 c652W
Mr. Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he is taking to ensure that cloth made in the People's Republic of China shall not enter the United Kingdom with the word "England" woven in its selvedge.

Mr. Howard

Section 16 of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 prohibits the importation of any goods to which a false or misleading trade description has been applied outside the United Kingdom. This section is enforced by the Customs and Excise and I have drawn this matter to their attention.
