HL Deb 22 December 1981 vol 426 c408WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have formed any estimate of the proportion of orders for goods purchased in this country by developing nations which are placed by persons who received their education in the United Kingdom.

Lord Trefgarne

Her Majesty's Government have not formed any estimate of this sort, and doubt whether it would be practicable to attempt to do so.

House adjourned for the Christmas Recess at twenty-four minutes before twelve o'clock noon until Monday, 18th January next.
