§ Mr. Blaker
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what proportion of the deterioration in the United Kingdom's overall visible trade deficit between 1970 and 1973 and between the first halves of 1973 and 1974, respectively, was accounted for by trade with the other eight members of the EEC.
§ Mr. Deakins
52 per cent. and 21 per cent. respectively. The latter figure is influenced by the increase in the oil deficit.
