asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish the trade balance with Poland, Czechoslovakia and Romania for each of the last five years,
|CRUDE TRADE BALANCES|
|(i.e. exports fob minus imports cif)|
|1970||1971||1972||1973||1974||January to June 1975|
Note:—Figures on a balance of payments basis are not available for trade with individual countries Crude balances are obtained by subtracting imports cif from exports fob. These are not a good measure of the balance of trade in goods because, inter alia, of differences in valuation.
