asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many references his officials have made in the past year to United States officials in relation to high technology exports from the United Kingdom where the goods were assembled or manufactured in the United Kingdom.

My officials regularly remind United States officials of the Government's continuing objection to United States claims to extraterritorial control over exports and from time to time take up problems which arise. No figures for such references are available.
