Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Films Act 1980 (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I agree wholeheartedly with the hon. Gentleman. I should stress that not only do we have some of the best film-makers in the world but some of the highest skills and greatest technical ability are to be found in our studios, of which other countries avail themselves. The Government recognise the value of a healthy British film industry and their policy is one of general encouragement. I hope...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Films Act 1980 (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It cannot be denied that fewer people are going to the cinema. There are a number of reasons, but time does not permit me to go into them. The structure of the film industry is in the process of change. There are great advantages to be gained from the changes for the British industry. I refer to video tapes and developments of that nature. I hope that the industry will be in a position to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Films Act 1980 (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The question of any contribution by the television industry is one for my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary. I have already told the House that I expect to make an announcement about the quota shortly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Films Act 1980 (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: If the hon. Gentleman will give me notice of that question, I shall be pleased to answer it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Petrol (Retail Sales) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: During the 12 months to 18 June I received representations from 63 petrol retailers on this subject.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Petrol (Retail Sales) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: While petrol pricing among retailers is highly competitive and of great benefit to consumers, I understand my hon. Friend's concern. There is market dominance in the supply of petrol by the big five oil companies and a degree of distortion of competition as a result. That is why the Director General of Fair Trading, following the Monopolies and Mergers Commission report in 1979, published his...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Petrol (Retail Sales) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I understand the point, but the answer is simple. Prices have been raised because of refining and retailing losses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Petrol (Retail Sales) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will know that certain of those discriminatory practices, such as maximum pricing, have not, in the view of the Director General of Fair Trading, warranted a re-reference because the last reference was in 1979. The other discriminatory practices to which I believe he is referring were revealed in the 1965 Monopolies and Mergers Commission report. Those agreements...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hairdressers (European Community) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My officials have kept trade representatives fully informed about these developments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hairdressers (European Community) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Almost anything that I say in reply will be taken as a double entendre, but I believe that the scheme has merits and is not running out of steam. Since its inception in March, the Council working group of officials has met three times to discuss the draft directive, and a further meeting is provisionally arranged for 18 September.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hairdressers (European Community) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It is not an earth-shattering priority, but our hairdressers who are highly qualified, have been through lengthy apprenticeships and have been trained to a high standard, would be genuinely concerned at infiltration of virtually untrained hairdressers from another member State, so the proposal has merit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hairdressers (European Community) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: As far as I am aware, it will not be.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The Government have taken a prominent role in forming the European Community's recent policy initiative on trade relations with Japan. During the United Kingdom presidency, we intend to work, in close co-operation with the Commission, in all areas of Community policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: No, I cannot agree with my hon. Friend. The Community is united in its policy towards Japan. Her Majesty's Government will continue firmly to support the development of a strong Community policy during our Presidency. The Commission's report to the Foreign Affairs Council on 23 June of the Community-wide surveillance of Japanese exports of cars, colour televisions and tubes and certain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: As the right hon. Gentleman will be aware, particular positive action has been taken by the Japanese Government in this area. Although it is clearly important for Japan to continue to remove its specific barriers, it is equally important that it should honour agreements with this country. As a major exporting nation, however, it is in our national interest to maintain open trading where it is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: That is an assumption which my hon. Friend makes. My hon. Friend the Minister for Trade will clearly wish to watch the development of any such situation very closely.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The answers to those questions are "Yes" and "No". Yes, it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to have open and fair competition. No, the Japanese do not impose higher tariff barriers except in the one case, which I think the hon. Gentleman has mentioned before—whisky—on which negotiations are now taking place.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am not sure exactly who works harder, but somebody does, whether it be management or labour, because labour unit costs are lower in Japan and productivity is much higher than in this country. That, of course, is the answer to all our international competitive problems—getting competitive pricing of unit labour costs, as my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer made...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: European Community (Japanese Negotiations) (29 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Many people in Japan have earned their job security by the levels of productivity achieved in the past few years and by the pay settlements that they have been satisfied with. I agree with the hon. Gentleman on one point. There is great motivation for the Japanese worker in terms of identity with the interests of his company. I should like to see higher motivation in Britain on that basis.

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: We have had an interesting and, above all, a revealing debate —revealing, because it has demonstrated that the Labour Party does not want to know when we talk about abuse of a dominant market position, about the restriction and distortion of competition, and about wider choice. It is clear that the Labour Party is against wider choice and against more competition. The blanket and biased...
