asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will make a statement on the meeting held with representatives of the Datsun Dealers' Association on 15 November; and if he will give details of any undertakings he may have made to them.

I met at their request representatives of dealers in Japanese cars, including Datsun, on 15 November 1979 to exchange views. The dealers drew attention to certain commercial problems which were causing them concern. I emphasised that these were not a matter for the Government but for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) to discuss with its Japanese counterpart.
