HC Deb 30 January 1985 vol 72 c207W
13. Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied with the United Kingdom's trade performance in manufactured goods for 1984.

Mr. Tebbit

I am principally concerned with the United Kingdom's overall trade performance, which was in slight surplus in 1984. In the manufactured goods sector, exports increased in volume by around 10 per cent. in 1984, roughly in line with world trade.
