HC Deb 12 December 1991 vol 200 c499W
Mr. Meale

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he is taking to urge the European Community in the GATT Uruguay round of trade negotiations to support strict linkage between the multi-fibre arrangement and strengthened GATT rules and disciplines.

Mr. Sainsbury

It is part of the European Community's mandate governing the Uruguay round textiles negotiations that this sector should be integrated into GATT on the basis of strengthened rules and disciplines. The mandate continues to be supported by the Government, the Commission and other member states.
