HC Deb 31 January 1967 vol 740 cc42-3W
61. Mr. Turton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the value of United Kingdom invisible exports to North America, the sterling area, the European Free Trade Association, and the European Economic Community, respectively, in each of the years 1964 and 1965.

Mr. Callaghan

Gross invisible earnings from the sterling area were £1,060 million in 1964 and £1,104 million in 1965, and from the rest of the world £1,610 million and £1,754 million. Of the latter figures, roughly 35–40 per cent. were from North America, 20–25 per cent. from the E.E.C. and 8–10 per cent. from E.F.T.A.
