HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 cc305-6W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state in tabular form in the OFFICIAL REPORT, at the 1965 value of the £, imports from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and exports and re-exports during the years 1950, 1960, 1963, 1964 and for the first six months of each year including 1965; and what were the main exports and imports during the first six months of 1964 and 1965.

Mr. Redhead

I regret that estimates of this trade at constant values are not available. Imports, exports and re-exports at current values are obtainable from the appropriate Trade and Navigation Accounts and Overseas Trade Accounts. Figures for the first six months of 1965 are not yet available. The main exports and imports in the first five months of 1964 and 1965 were as follows:

Exports Imports
Machinery Metals and metalliferous ores
Chemicals Timber and manufactures of wood
Textile fibres, yarns and fabrics Undressed furskins
