§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish a table showing the three countries with which the United Kingdom enjoys the largest surplus in manufacturing trade and the three countries with which the United Kingdom has the largest manufacturing deficit.
§ Mr. Sproat
Owing to disruption resulting from the Civil Service industrial dispute in 1981, the latest calendar year for which this information is available is 1980. I would therefore refer my hon. Friend to the reply my hon. Friend the Minister for Trade gave to him on Friday 30 October 1981.
