asked the Secretary of State for Trade what representations he has received from the British Textile Employers' Association relating to the lorry drivers' strike; and if he will make a statement on his Department's assessment of the loss of exports resulting from this strike, the dispute involving the tanker drivers, and the unofficial action being taken by certain employees of the North-West water authority.
