§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is the total British cargo turnover per annum at Stockholm, Hälsingborg and Gothenburg, respectively.
§ Mr. Tebbit
The information is not available from national or published international sources. However, total cargo turnover at each of the ports—all imports, exports and domestic coastal traffic—for 1976, the latest year readily available, was as follows:
Total United Kingdom seaborne trade between the United Kingdom and Sweden in 1978 was as follows:
Million tonnes Gothenburg 20 Helsingborg 7 Stockholm 6 All Swedish ports 105 Source: National Bureau of Statistics, Sweden.
Million tonnes £ million United Kingdom seaborne exports to Sweden 6.3 1,082 United Kingdom seaborne imports from Sweden. 5.3 1,282
The ports most used in this trade will not necessarily follow exactly the pattern shown above for overall turnover.
