§ Mr. Bruce George
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects the report of the findings of the recent European Commission investigation into imported cigarette lighters which purport to be refillable in order to circumvent the anti-dumping duty to be published. 
§ Mr. Wilson
The Council Regulation resulting from the Commission's investigation was published as Council Regulation (EC) No 192–1999 of 25 January 1999 in the "Official Journal of the European Communities", No. L22 of 29 January 1999. The Regulation entered into force on 30 January 1999 and, broadly, extends the application of the anti-dumping duty on disposable, non-refillable lighters originating in China to such lighters originating in, or consigned from, Taiwan and to refillable lighters (of less than a certain value) originating in both China and Taiwan.
