Trade between this country and China was 28 per cent. higher in 1955 than in the previous year. The prospects are that it will be maintained at this level in 1956.
Mr. H. Wilson
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that for about three years we have never been given a clear answer to the question of the Government's attitude with regard to trade with China? Now, nearly three years after the end of the fighting in Korea, is it not time that this boycott was relaxed, and the same restrictions placed upon trade with China as apply to trade with Eastern Europe?
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
That question, although pertinent, raises wider issues than can be dealt with simply by way of question and answer.
