Hosiery And Knitwear Industry

EDM number 1430 in 1989-90, proposed by Jimmy Wray on 22/10/1990.

That this House supports the National Union of Hosiery and Knitwear Industry demands that the Multi-Fibre Arrangement be renewed including effective provisions to stop cheap clothing and textiles products, resulting from unfair international trading practices, flooding our home market; believes that failure to do so will damage proper commercial competition at national and international levels; is sadly aware that international trading practices, which should not be allowed, have already cost the United Kingdom 15,000 trading jobs since 1988; and demands that Her Majesty's Government discharge their duty by properly representing the legitimate interests of the United Kingdom and its hosiery and knitwear industry, thus protecting its 65,000 workers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
