§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what percentage of the United Kingdom market 548W for manufactures was taken by the six original European Economic Community members in 1972 and 1983, respectively.
§ Mr. Channon
In 1983 the six original members of the European Community supplied approximately 15 per cent. of the United Kingdom market for the products of manufacturing industry. The corresponding figure for 1975—the earliest year for which directly comparable information is available—was 8.5 per cent.
