Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many dollars the British motor industry has earned by sales to Canada and the United States of America during the first eight months of 1950.

Mr. Bottomley

No figures are available in respect of the dollar earnings of the British motor industry, but United Kingdom exports to the United States and Canada during January-August, 1950, of cars, commercial vehicles, tractors and parts and accessories thereof, as recorded in the Trade Returns, were valued at £22.8 million, which is equivalent to United States $63.9 million.
