HC Deb 26 February 1963 vol 672 c146W
Mr. Skeet

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the total tonnage and value of ships over 2,000 tons deadweight ordered by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and East European countries in the United Kingdom between 1946 and the present date.

Mr. Marples

I have been asked to reply.

25,000 d.w.t. I regret that the value of these is not readily available. Exports of newly built vessels over 250 g.r.t. to these countries in that period were about £9½ million.
