HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 cc133-4W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development whether he will publish in HANSARD a table of figures giving the amount of trade with Spain for each calendar year from January, 1952; what were the major items of trade each way; what types of goods have been ordered since the "Leander" frigate incident; and to what extent the building of the "Leander" frigates from plans supplied by Great Britain was dependent upon these being constructed in shipyards in Great Britain.

Mr. D. Price

I am sending the hon. Member the figures for which he asks and am making a copy available in the Library.

As regards the last part of the Question, I have nothing to add to the Answer given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence to the hon. Member for Wednesbury (Mr. Stone-house) on the 7th July.
