§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what has been the change in the United Kingdom share of the volume of exports of manufactures by the main manufacturing countries since 1990; and if he will publish the latest three months' figures for the change in value since 1970 for the United Kingdom and those countries.
§ Mr. Needham
The information can be readily derived from table El of the "Monthly Review of External Trade Statistics", published by the Central Statistical Office, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House.
Information on the latest three months' change in the value of exports manufactures by the United Kingdom and the main manufacturing countries is not readily available and could be produced only at disproportionate cost.
