§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what proportion of the total sales of PVC leathercloth in the United Kingdom home market—by volume—was represented by imported products during the first quarter of 1974; and how this compared with the corresponding proportion during the first quarter of 1973.
§ Mr. Deakins
Figures for total sales and imports and exports are not fully comparable but it is estimated that the proportion of the home market for PVC leathercloth represented by imports in the first quarter of 1974 was 37 per cent. The corresponding proportion for the first quarter of 1973 was 25 per cent.
