asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish dates of application made by the British footwear manufacturing industry for antidumping duties, and the results of each application.
[pursuant to his reply, 20 March 1980, c. 272]: Since 1975, following applications for anti-dumping or countervailing action from the British footwear manufacturing industry three investigations—two anti-dumping and one countervailing—have been opened. Details of these are set out below:the Community to be issued by the authorities of the country in which the vehicle is registered. Compliance with the directive would require a bilateral agreement, and the United Kingdom has for some years been endeavouring to conclude such an agreement with the Republic of Ireland. I am glad to say that negotiations are now complete and I hope that the agreement will be signed within the very near future, and be brought into force on 1 July. When it is in force, United Kingdom hauliers will obtain the necessary permits from the Department's international Road Freight Office in Newcastle-upon-Tyne or from the Department of the Environment (NI) as appropriate.
