asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will list by country of origin, on an annual basis since 1975, the amount in tonnes of hexachlorophene imported into the United Kingdom.

This substance is not separately identified in theOverseas Trade Statistics. I also understand that details of imports in the special chemicals return, prepared monthly by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise, are subject to suppression for reasons of commercial confidentiality.
