HC Deb 30 October 1987 vol 121 c455W
Mr. John Marshall

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how the growth in British exports to the EEC compares with the growth of British trade over the past 10 years.

Mr. Butcher

In the 12 months ended September 1987, the value of United Kingdom exports to the other countries of the European Community was three and a quarter times that in the same period in 1976–77; United Kingdom exports worldwide were two and a half times their value 10 years ago.
