§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether the commercial import of motor vehicles from a non-European Economic Community country, as in the case of the proposed import of Japanese-designed tractors assembled in Turkey, requires the consent (a) of his Department, or (b) of the European Commission.
§ Peter Rees
[pursuant to his reply, 19 March 1982, c. 212]: No. Such vehicles may be imported freely under the authority of the open general import licence, dated 8 August 1980, issued by the Secretary of State for Trade. I am not aware of any proposal to import Japanese-designed tractors assembled in Turkey.
