Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what has been the percentage increase in the export of manufactured goods to the European Economic Community and the rest of the world, respectively, since 1972.

Mr. Sproat

Between 1972 and 1980, the latest year for which complete information is available, the value of United Kingdom exports of manufactures to the Community rose by about 470 per cent., compared with about 275 per cent. for United Kingdom exports to non-Community countries.
