§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is his latest estimate of the current effect on the home market for cars of voluntary agreements with the Japanese industry; and what further steps he is considering in this matter.
§ Mr. Dell
Inter-industry discussions about the United Kingdom car market for 1978 were held with the Japanese in Tokyo last week. The report of the British industry delegation is being made today. We are in contact with the Japanese Government. An assessment of the position will be made as rapidly as possible.
