§ Mr. George Howarth
To ask the President of the Board of Trade (1) if he will list the 10 countries which rank highest in terms of their share of the world-wide market in clean technologies;
(2) what is his estimate of the United Kingdom's share of the world-wide market for clean technology; and what is the lowest OECD figure for the total value of this market.
§ Mr. Heseltine
[holding answers 30 March 1994]: There is no world-wide agreement on the definition of cleaner technology. Reliable statistics of this type are not therefore available.
