asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the foreign exchange earnings were of British oil companies in each of the last five years in the two areas of the Middle East and the Far East.

It is not possible, for the reasons given in my hon. Friend the Economic Secretary's reply to the hon. Member for Bolton West (Mr. Holt) on 5th April, to publish separate figures of foreign exchange earnings on oil account.
