§ Mr. Hawkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware of the need to give the blackcurrant growers of Norfolk and elsewhere protection against foreign dumped imports; and whether these imports will be covered by the recently imposed 15 per cent. surcharge.
§ Mr. Peart
I am not aware that blackcurrants are being dumped in this country. But it is always open to British growers, like any other industry, to make an application to the Board of Trade under the Customs Duties (Dumping and Subsidies) Act, 1957, if they have evidence80W that dumping is taking place and that it is causing them or threatening them with material injury. Blackcurrant imports are not subject to the fifteen per cent. surcharge.
