Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: USSR (United Kingdom Exports) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I can give my hon. Friend that assurance. We offer credit to the Soviet Union on the same terms as those offered by other OECD countries. There would be no sense in offering either worse or better terms or discriminating in favour of the Soviet Union. The agreement that ended in February 1980 is not to be renewed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Yes, Sir.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have a good deal of sympathy with what I think is the point that my hon. Friend is making, which is that the service to consumers, the prices offered by the public sector industries and the service that they render to the economy as a whole are far less satisfactory than the contribution made by the private sector. If that is my hon. Friend's point, I entirely agree with him. The Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I think that the legislation is sufficiently explicit for the Monopolies and Mergers Commission. The hon. Gentleman will be aware that the Commission has wide discretion in determining the criteria—

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: These are all matters for ongoing Government consideration. The Commission is an independent body and that is its main strength. It has wide expertise to call upon and the Government will not criticise individual reports from the Commission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am not sure whether my hon. Friend is aware of the recommendations contained in the Liesner report of July 1980. The Government took a keen interest in the recommendations and they will continue to consider them. That matter will be part of the ongoing consideration of policy concerning the Monopolies and Mergers Commission and the competition policy that is involved. These are matters for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am much gratified by the right hon. Gentleman's knowledge of commentary and rumour. Any action that had to be taken would depend on the circumstances. I can give him the assurance that if necessary there would be recourse to the order-making powers under the fair trading legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Products (Counterfeiting) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: In the past six months we have received three complaints about the counterfeiting of British products by overseas manufacturers. We urge British companies to secure the greatest possible protection for their patents, trade marks and designs and we are prepared to back them in pursuing cases where patents, trade marks and designs are infringed. In many cases these efforts are successful, but I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Products (Counterfeiting) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: We very much sympathise with the dilemma of Smith and Welstood and other small companies. We have advised Smith and Welstood on how it might protect its rights. The company has yet to respond to our offer of a meeting to discuss how it might pursue its complaints. As the United Kingdom has no diplomatic relations with Taiwan it is not possible to make direct representations to the Taiwanese...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Products (Counterfeiting) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I was not aware of the statement to which the hon. Gentleman referred. However, the number of cases brought to the attention of the Department has decreased significantly in recent months. I hope that that is the result of the successful resolution of such cases in Taiwan and the result of the measures to which I have referred.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Products (Counterfeiting) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am sure that my hon. Friend is aware, as is the whole House, that I laid regulations before the House to require country-of-origin marking in particular on such goods as those produced by the Sheffield manufacturers to which he is referring, and that those country-of-origin markings make the matter perfectly clear if blanks, for example, are produced in Taiwan or any other country, or in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Products (Counterfeiting) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have already said that the Government have publicly made it clear to the Government of Taiwan that we disapprove of counterfeiting. We have made public statements to that effect—not through diplomatic channels, because they do not exist—and the Taiwanese authorities have taken action. It now remains to be seen whether that action is appropriate and adequate. From the reduction in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: In the first eight months of this year there was a small but welcome increase in the number of visitors to Britain from North America, compared with the same period in 1980. In my view, that is an indication that we are no longer regarded in North America as a high-priced tourist destination. I am also pleased to say that the American Society of Travel Writers has voted Britain the most...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My hon. Friend is right. This cannot be publicised too often. Britain is almost certainly the best buy for American tourists and, for that matter, for tourists from much of the rest of the world. With a strong dollar and with very competitive pricing, the outlook for the travel trade next year is very optimistic. The United States is a huge market, as I learnt on a recent visit, and one with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I agree entirely with the first part of the hon. Gentleman's question or statement. Of course Scotland has a very important role in attracting tourists here. As for the air services to which the hon. Gentleman referred, I understand that Sir Freddie Laker has applied for the route. It is hoped that no vacuum will be created.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I assure my hon. Friend that that is a complete myth. It is not true now, if it ever was, that London hotels, for example, are expensive compared with those of our main competitors. A Financial Times survey about 18 months ago showed us near the top of the league. We are now 25th in the league table. Moreover, some 30,000 hotel rooms are available in London alone for between £8 and £25 a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I do not accept what the hon. Gentleman said about an over-valued pound. There is a stronger dollar today. That is how I prefer to view the matter. That is very helpful to the tourist industry. The tourist industry has had a difficult year, for a variety of reasons. But the optimism for the future is a tribute to the industry for responding to increased competitive pressures at a time of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I welcome any initiative and any action abroad on the part of any tourist board to promote tourism here. Our main tourist bodies do a very good job in this respect. I was able to see them in action recently in the United States. My hon. Friend asked me about the Development of Tourism Act. I am afraid that I require notice of his question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry (Legislation) (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: In general, yes, although there is the possibility of some duplication of effort between the two advisory bodies of film matters namely, the Cinematograph Films Council and the Interim Action Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry (Legislation) (16 Tach 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I agree wholehearedly that we have some of the best film makers in the world at every level and in every sphere. I frequently meet them to discuss the various problems of the industry and am always impressed by their constructive approach. There is no point in setting a quota at a totally unrealistic level in terms of the number of British films available and the number of people going to...
