§ 20. Mr. Redmond
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what was the value of British exports to Australia in 1968, 1969 and 1970, respectively; and what proportion of this is 913 represented by the products of the shipbuilding industry.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
£321 million, £323 million and £346 million respectively, of which ships and boats represented between 1 and 1½ per cent.
§ Mr. Redmond
Does my hon. Friend agree that these figures do not show that Australia has been particularly anxious to give assistance to British industries in need of support? Have any representations recently been made to Australia on that subject?
