HC Deb 20 October 1966 vol 734 c70W
Mr. Faulds

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will publish in the Official Report a comparison of British investment in, and trade with, the countries of South Africa, Rhodesia and the Portuguese territories in Africa taken as a whole, and the rest of the African countries taken as a whole.

Mr. Mason

The following is the information:

£ million
South Africa, Rhodesia, and Portuguese territories in Africa 750–800 215 312
