asked the Secretary of State for Industry how much Garlon 2 herbicide was imported into the United Kingdom during the past (a) 12 months and (b) 24 months; what percentage of these quantitites was used in the United Kingdom; what percentage was re-exported in various forms; whether the product is now manufactured in the United Kingdom; whether it has ever been manufactured; at whose instigation; and when stoppage in manufacture took place.

I understand from industry sources that about 50,000 litres of Garlon 2 herbicide have been imported into the United Kingdom, virtually all since April 1982. None has been re-exported, and none has been manufactured in this country.
