Alert me about debates like this

That this House takes note of European Community Document No. 4133/86 on the legal protection of original topographies of semi-conductor products, and the Department of Trade and Industry's un-numbered explanatory memorandum of 22nd October 1986; endorses the importance attached to the protection of topographies; recognises the need for early decisions to ensure continued protection in the important American market; and supports the Government's decision to agree to the adoption of this instrument in the light of the undertaking by the European Commission that it will keep under review developments on reverse engineering and make proposals for further legislation as a matter or urgency as necessary.—[Mr. Lightbown.]

Question agreed to.
