HC Deb 29 January 1992 vol 202 c620W
16. Mr. Cran

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the increase in Scottish exports in the period 1978 to 1990.

Mr. Allan Stewart

There is no comprehensive information on total Scottish exports.

The Scottish Council (Development and Industry), however, carries out an annual survey of Scottish manufacturing exports only. The results show that the value of Scottish manufacturing exports increased by 21 per cent. in real terms, between 1978 and 1990 to their highest ever recorded level of £8.6 billion.
