§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the President of the Board of Trade what study he has made of the factors underlying the increase in British exports of pesticides to the United States of America from 1.091 million United States dollars in 1964, to 1.095 million United States dollars in 1965 to 1.815 million United States dollars in 1966 to 2.606 million United States dollars in 1967; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Dell
United Kingdom exports of pesticides and related products, including disinfectant, rose from £388,613 in 1964 to £944,839 in 1967. Most of this rise has been achieved by increased shipments of bipyridyl herbicides developed in the United Kingdom. These offer substantial advantages over herbicides previously available and their success overseas is much to be welcomed.
