HC Deb 07 May 1985 vol 78 c311W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Prime Minister if she will make it her policy to propose the phasing out of restrictions under the multi-fibre arrangement on textile and clothing imports from all the 50 poorest countries during the Bonn economic summit.

The Prime Minister

The Government is still considering what regime should succeed the current multi-fibre arrangement when it expires in July next year; a matter which the House will be debating on 9 May. We shall be taking account of the needs of the world's least developed countries.
