§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish in the Official Report a table of the less-developed countries with which the United Kingdom enjoys a balance of trade surplus, showing the annual surpluses for each year over the last five years to the latest convenient date.
§ Mr. Parkinson
I regret that it would entail undue cost to do so, in view of the large number of countries concerned. The information can be obtained from table I of the annual editions of theOverseas Trade Statistics of the United Kingdom for 1976 and 1977 and the December issues for 1978 and 1979.
