§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has had concerning the impact on United Kingdom trade, tourism and the free movement of goods and people of the road blocks set up by French hauliers, dockers and farmers in Macon, Narbonne, Perpignan and elsewhere; what proposals he has to approach the French ambassador to the Court of St. James on the matter; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
[holding answer 6 July 1992]: We have received representations from or on behalf of individual transport operators and the relevant trade associations. My right hon. Friend is keeping in close and regular contact with Mr. Bianco, his French counterpart, and is urging him to find solutions to this appalling situation as quickly as possible.
