HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c354W
Mr. Park

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the current state of trade with China; and what assessment he makes of the future prospects

Mr. Channon

Imports from the People's Republic of China to the United Kingdom for the first 10 months of this year totalled £194 million. United Kingdom exports to China for the same period were worth £140 million, a significant increase on the total of £74 million for the same period last year. Good prospects exist for a steady increase in our exports to China in the coming years.
