HC Deb 17 May 1993 vol 225 c34W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to press the European Commission for an improved system of origin marking for leather goods manufactured in the EC from leather produced outside the EC; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Leigh

[holding answer 6 May 1993]: No. A previous attempt to interest other member states in anC-wide policy on origin marking attracted little support.
