asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he will circulate in the Official Report a table showing estimated relative export prices of manufactures in dollar terms, for each quarter of 1979 and the first quarter of the current year, for each of the counties listed in table F2 of the "Monthly Review of External Trade Statistics", based on a projection of export prices and rates of inflation.

Information on a slightly different basis is compiled by the International Monetary Fund and published in International Financial Statistics. The latest available data are given on page 43 of the June issue, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
