§ 52. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has yet made a final estimate of the net contribution of the United Kingdom shipping industry to the balance of payments in 1967; and by how much it exceeded that of 1966.
§ Mr. Crosland
Final figures are not yet available, but the provisional estimate for 1967 is £246 million, £100 million more than in 1966.
