NOT CONSULTED

BRITISH TYRE FIRMS

COMPLAINT BY BUREAU

Complaint that six United Kingdom tyre manufacturers whom It represented had not been consulted concerning the proposals of the New Zealand Government to grant licenses for the manufacture of tyres was made by the Bureau of Importers in a statement issued during the week-end. The manufacturers concerned, it was stated, considered that the granting of any licenses would be a definite contravention of the undertaking that they would first be consulted. Any partial or total prohibition of competitive imports of tyres under the import licensing system would be a definite breach of the White Paper agreement (made in Britain in 1939). The fact that one British firm—Dunlop—was consulted did not constitute consultations with the United Kingdom industries concerned.

The six firms listed by the bureau are: Avon India Rubber Company, Limited, Henley Tyre and Rubber Company, John Bull Rubber Company, Michelin Tyre Company, Limited, North British Rubber Tyre Company, Limited, and the Bergouan Tyre Company.
