asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will list conveniently available figures for United Kingdom trade with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, over the months from January 1978 until May of the current year.
The information is as follows:
|United Kingdom Imports £million||United Kingdom Exports cif£ million fob|
Overseas Trade Statistics (SITC/R2).
The effects of industrial disputes may have produced distortions in the allocation of trade to individual months in the first seven months of 1979 Figures for these months should therefore be interpreted with caution. More generally, it should be noted that figures for individual months omit subsequent corrections incorporated in the latest published cumulative figures.
