asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement about the outcome of the Industry Council on 17 October.

I represented the United Kingdom at this council, which had initial discussions on the system of market organisation for the EC steel industry after 1985, and on restrictions on state aid for steel after 1985. No decisions were reached, and a further council meeting will take place on 29 October.The council also adopted a declaration expressing very great concern about the unacceptable attitude being adopted by the USA in current negotiations on EC steel exports to the USA.
