asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the total value of all private account trade passing between Great Britain and the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation countries.

The total value of United Kingdom exports to O.E.E.C. countries in 1948 was £459 million, nearly all of which was on private account. It is estimated that United Kingdom imports from these countries of goods which are at present being imported on private account amounted in 1948 to £320 million.
