asked the Secretary of State for Trade what estimate he has made of the level of imports of textile and clothing products in 1981 compared with 1980.

Information for 1981 as a whole is not at present available, and I prefer not to venture an estimate. Available information for 1981 is given with the comparable figure for 1980, in the following table:

United Kingdom imports of textile and clothing products, available months of 1981 compared with 1980
£ million cif
January-April, September-December 19812,078
January-April, September-December 19801,888
