HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 c283W
Mr. Blaker

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the United Kingdom's percentage share of world exports in 1967; and what was the comparable figure for 1968.

Mr. Dell

The United Kingdom share of exports of manufactures from the main manufacturing countries was 12 per cent. in 1967 and 11 per cent. in 1968. Part of the reduction was due to the fall in United Kingdom export prices expressed in dollar terms.
