25. Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what contribution manufacturing industry is currently making to export levels. [32135]

Mr. Nelson

In 1995, the value of the United Kingdom's manufacturing exports was £127 billion, which represented 83 per cent. of our exports for that year. This is the highest percentage contribution of manufactures to exports for 23 years.
