HC Deb 14 March 1990 vol 169 c306W
Mr. Henderson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list the quotas covered by the multi-fibre arrangement and indicate the proportion of each quota used.

Mr. Redwood

[holding answer 13 March 1990]: Details of current quotas for the United Kingdom under the European Community's bilateral multi-fibre arrangement agreements with third countries are set out in the notice to importers 2249 published in Lloyd's List International on 4 January 1990. This is available in the Library of the House.

Quota utilisation records for 1989 will not be finalised for some time yet. The DTI is currently preparing a summary of quota utilisation in 1988, a copy of which will be placed in the Library of the House when it is ready.
