HC Deb 12 May 1987 vol 116 c140W
Sir Hugh Rossi

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, pursuant to the answer of 6 May, Official Report, column 418, about hydraulic excavators what information is available to his Department about the quantity and value of components imported by Komatsu in any recent period.

Mr. Alan Clark

[pursuant to his reply, 11 May 1987, c. 21]: Information relating to individual importers is held by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise, but is not normally made available to anyone outside that Department. Components for hydraulic excavators are not separately identified in the Overseas Trade Statistics.
