§ 4. Mr. Soames
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the export performance of the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Channon
Non-oil exports have been at their highest ever level in recent months. The volume of non-oil exports should rise further in 1987 reflecting faster growth in the United Kingdom's overseas markets and our improved competitiveness.
§ 44. Mr. Fallon
