HC Deb 14 December 1979 vol 975 cc805-6W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is the total British cargo turnover per annum at Stockholm, Hälsingborg and Gothenburg, respectively.

Mr. Tebbit

The information is not available from national or published international sources. However, total cargo turnover at each of the ports—all imports, exports and domestic coastal traffic—for 1976, the latest year readily available, was as follows:

Million tonnes
Gothenburg 20
Helsingborg 7
Stockholm 6
All Swedish ports 105

Total United Kingdom seaborne trade between the United Kingdom and Sweden in 1978 was as follows:
Million tonnes £ million
United Kingdom seaborne exports to Sweden 6.3 1,082
United Kingdom seaborne imports from Sweden. 5.3 1,282

The ports most used in this trade will not necessarily follow exactly the pattern shown above for overall turnover.
