Is my hon. Friend aware that a meeting was held in this building last week with representatives of the metal fasteners industry, which is heavily concentrated in the West Midlands? Those representatives said very strongly and unanimously that they were being badly hit by the use of metal fasteners manufactured with cheap Western European steel—I repeat, not Asian steel but cheap Western European steel—which is being produced and marketed in violation of existing Common Market rules.
