asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he has taken to seek to bring to an end the implementation of the United States Export Administration Act 1985 in the United Kingdom.

My right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State and I continue to emphasise to the United States Administration the Government's objections to the claims to extraterritorial control over exports maintained in the new Export Administration Act and to warn of the damaging consequences to our mutual interests of attempts to enforce such claims in the United Kingdom. Efforts to prevent or resolve problems arising from such controls will continue to be made under the consultation arrangements agreed by the United Kingdom and United States Governments in November 1984.
