§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
This regulation, which was approved by representatives of the United Kingdom and of the other member states of the Community on 6 February, implements the decision of Council of Ministers in November 1983 to retaliate against United States of America measures restricting imports of special steels unless an acceptable settlement was reached. Her Majesty's Government fully support this retaliatory action by the Community.
