HC Deb 25 March 1970 vol 798 cc402-3W
45. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the decision of the Ocean Steamship Company to cease calling at Chinese ports until the situation is clarified, he will make a statement on the future prospects for trade with China.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

Trade with China has increased over the past year and our export performance has been particularly good. I have every hope that this trend will continue despite what I trust are temporary difficulties over shipping.
