111. Earl of Dalkeith
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to what extent was the £73 million increase in the cost of imported timber and processed timber including pulp and paper between 1968 and 1970 attributable to the rise in the volume imported, and to rising prices, respectively.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
Most, if not all, of the increase in the value of imports between 1968 and 1970 was due to price changes.
