HC Deb 03 December 1969 vol 792 c300W
78. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the quantities of exports of steel from Great Britain, generally, and to Sweden, respectively, during the three months August, September and October, specifying in each case the quantities of each type of steel exported; and what are the quantities of steel imported, generally, and from Sweden, respectively, during the same three months and giving the same specific quantities.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Exports of steel in total were 948,000 tons, of which 50,000 tons went to Sweden. Imports were 530,000 tons, of which 34,000 tons came from Sweden. To provide the figures in the detail requested would involve an undue expenditure of time and money.
