Although “serious damage” has been done to the security of Western nations by Toshiba Machine Co.'s sale of sensitive equipment to the Soviets, the White House does not support efforts to severely restrict Toshiba’s sales and operations in this country, Edward Derwinski of the State Deparment, told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on trade.
