§ Captain Orr
asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development whether he will state the figures of trade between the United Kingdom and Japan for the year 1963; what improvement they show in United Kingdom exports to Japan; and whether Her Majesty's Government are satisfied that the Anglo-Japanese Commercial Treaty of 1962 has succeeded in developing increased exports of United Kingdom manufacturers to Japan.
§ Mr. du Cann
In 1963, the value of United Kingdom exports to Japan was £49.4 millions f.o.b. and the value of United Kingdom imports from Japan was £52.7 millions c.i.f. The United Kingdom export total in 1963 was £6 millions higher than that of 1962, an increase of nearly 14 per cent. The answer to the last part of the Question is yes.
