HC Deb 31 July 1981 vol 9 cc629-30W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what has been the value of American feature films imported into the United Kingdom in each of the past five years; and what has been the value of British films exported to the United States of America.

Mr. Parkinson

The Overseas Trade Statistics of the United Kingdom give details of imports—table III—and exports—table VI—of exposed and developed cinematographic film of all kinds under SITC(R2) Group 883—1978 onwards—and SITC(R1) Group 863—1976 and 1977—but feature films are not separately indentified.
