HC Deb 27 November 1985 vol 87 cc584-5W
Mr. Fallon

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on trading prospects with Iraq.

Mr. Channon

In the first nine months of this year United Kingdom exports to Iraq totalled £340 million, an increase of 44 per cent. over the same period in 1984. I shall be seeking ways of strengthening bilateral trade in meetings this week with the Iraqi Minister of Trade.
