§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what was the total value of the manufactured goods which the United Kingdom sent to and imported from the European Economic Community in the most recent annual period for which figures are available; and what were the comparable figures for the rest of the world.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
In the year ending October 1986, United Kingdom exports of manufactures to the European Communities totalled £23½ billion and imports £34 billion. Exports to the rest of the world were £30 billion and imports £26½ billion. These figures are on the overseas trade statistics basis.
