HC Deb 10 December 1991 vol 200 c374W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has made to the European Community concerning the level of duty for non-leather footwear categories in the GATT negotiations.

Mr. Lilley

We are aware of the concerns of the United Kingdom footwear industry about tariff barriers against non-leather footwear and have drawn them to the attention of the European Commission, which is taking them into account in the GATT Uruguay round negotiations.
