I aim to secure amending legislation by the 1st July, 1968, when the Kennedy Round Agreement on antidumping enters into force for each party which has accepted it by that date. A Ways and Means Resolution was tabled on 8th March.

As the Government said some weeks ago that they were going to introduce a Bill shortly, can the right hon. Gentleman say what the reason has been for the delay?

I do not think there has been much delay. As I say, the Ways and Means Resolution has now been tabled, and the Bill will have its First Reading as soon as the Ways and Means Resolution is passed.
