HC Deb 31 March 1994 vol 240 c1008W
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.
