§ Mr. Norman Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what percentage of British export trade in manufactured goods is manufactured in the United Kingdom by multinational companies based overseas.
§ Mr. Parkinson
[pursuant to his reply, 3 March 1981, c. 57]: The available information relating to the percentage of United Kingdom exports accounted for by United Kingdom enterprises with overseas direct investment links in the years 1975 to 1978 was published in table 6.2 of the Business Monitor MA4, Overseas Transactions 1978, a copy of which is in the Library. Separate information is not compiled for overseas controlled enterprises in manufacturing.
