to the Commission

 Subject:  Liberalisation of the footwear market
 Answer in writing 

Under a bilateral agreement of 2000 between the EU and China, as of 1 January 2005 the Union's quotas for footwear imports from China have been abolished. What action will the Commission take to prevent Chinese footwear from flooding the market and damaging the interests of European and Italian manufacturers, with serious repercussions for employment?

Can the Commission explain why it is taking no steps to introduce a mandatory indication of origin for imports?

Given that China is not respecting the WTO rules and that the Asian giant is thus acquiring an unfair advantage, abusing - with our own consent - its dominant position vis-à-vis the entire market, in this way gravely harming Europe's industry, can the Commission explain why imports are not being restricted until such time as China and all the WTO's member states comply with their obligations - which translate into costs - regarding the environment, health and worker's rights?
