HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c116W
86. Mr. Wyatt

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now publish the newly-estimated calculations for the United Kingdom exports over the last five years; and whether the recent errors have been eliminated in calculating exports for June, 1969.

Mr. Dell

I hope to make a further announcement on the under-recording of exports shortly. Tile improvements which have been set in train are unlikely as yet to have led to any significant improvement in recording. No allowance was included in the June export figures in respect of under-recording which I estimate on a conservative basis at about £10 million.
