§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the amount of statistical data supplied to manufacturers in order to encourage the programme of import substitution.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
A wide range of data is published or made available on request which could be useful for this purpose. Under Section 3 of the Finance Act, 1967 approximately 40,000 extracts of information from import documents have been provided specifically for assistance to import substitution, mainly relating to engineering and chemical products.
