HC Deb 18 July 1961 vol 644 c121W
76. Mr. D. Jones

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that sales of British computing machines are not being developed in British markets and that such development as exists is in respect of American machines in preference to British machines; and what steps he is taking to assist their recovery.

Mr. Erroll

While exports of electronic computers fell back in the first quarter of this year, the industry has achieved a steady expansion of exports over recent years and should continue Ito do so in spite of competition from the United States.
