asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether his Department is able to control the importation of sterile water from the United States of America; if so, what were the quantities imported in the last three years; at what estimated cost; and if he will make a statement.

Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services. I have no information on the quantity or cost of sterile water imports.
