HC Deb 07 February 1986 vol 91 c286W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many system X telephone exchanges have been sold overseas by Plessey and the General Electric Company as a result of assistance from his Department.

Mr. Butcher

Orders outside the United Kingdom for system X have been won in St. Vincent, Jersey and Guernsey. In each case the business was won on the competitive merits of the system and its suppliers.
