HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 cc132-3W
Mr. Duffy

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development what was Britain's percentage share by value of the world export trade in woven wool fabrics in 1961 and the first quarter of 1961; and how these figures compare with 1963 and the first quarter of 1964, respectively.

Mr. D. Price

The United Kingdom's share of the value of woven wool fabrics exported by the main exporting countries—O.E.C.D. member countries which now include Japan—in 1961 was 34 per cent. In the first quarter of 1961 it was 39 per cent. Figures are not yet available for all these countries for the year 1963 or the first quarter of 1964.
