HC Deb 09 March 1954 vol 524 c138W
81. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the fall in car sales overseas; and what steps he is taking in this matter.

Mr. Amory

Our motor car exports in 1953, though slightly lower than in 1952, stood at the impressive figure of £104 million and have shown signs, very recently, of rising again. The Government will continue to do all it can to support and encourage the industry's determined export efforts, which this praiseworthy achievement reflects.
