HC Deb 18 April 1975 vol 890 cc187-8W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what has been the value of imported machine tools from the USSR and the German Democratic Republic for each of the past three years; and if he will make a statement about credit facilities for these imports.

Mr. Deakins

Figures of imports under SITC(R) 715.1 are published for year 1972 in Table II of Volume I of the "Annual Statement of the Overseas Trade of the United Kingdom" and for years 1973 and 1974 in Table III of the respective December issues of the "Overseas Trade Statistics of the United Kingdom". I am not aware of any special credit facilities. Credit arrangements are a matter between buyer and seller.
