Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - The current dispute with China highlights a growing trend, which is making life difficult for our own textile and knitwear industries. I supported amendments which would require that labour standards at sites operated in non-EU countries be monitored, including at sites outsourced by EU companies. The ongoing drive towards low-cost imports should not be an excuse to continue utilising sub-standard production facilities with unacceptably poor working conditions and wages.
