HC Deb 14 November 1968 vol 773 c119W
39. Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what other industries he estimates have an equivalent or greater import saving potential than agriculture.

Mr. Alan Williams

It would not be meaningful to rank industries in the way that is suggested in the Question. Such a ranking would need to take account not only of the potential import savings, but also of the costs of realising them.
