§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Minister for Trade what was the volume and value of base metal ores and concentrates imported from Namibia in each of the years 1979, 1980, 1981 and 1982.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
[pursuant to his reply, 24 January 1983, c. 264]: One hundred tonnes of manganese ores and concertrates were imported in 1981 at a value of £6,000 cif. Other imports of the ores and concentrates of base metals in the period in question all fell within item 287–99 of the Standard International Trade Classification (Revision 2), which covers antimony, cobalt, uranium and other base metals not separately identified, details of which are not available for publication.
