To ask the President of the Board of Trade what response he has made to representations632W from the Confederation of British Industry regarding the relative strength of the United Kingdom's trading position in Europe.

The UK's trade with Europe has climbed to record levels. At a recent meeting with my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, the CBI welcomed the very low level of output price inflation that was contributing to this performance.
