To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will publish a table showing the latest figure for import penetration from the European Economic Community as a percentage of home demand on the same basis as in table 15.10 of the Monthly Digest of Statistics; and if he will add the figures for 1970 and 1979 on a broadly comparable basis.

My Department does not make regular estimates of import penetration ratios for particular groups of trading partners. However, estimates broadly comparable to those published in the Monthly Digest of Statistics are as follows:

EC imports as a proportion of home demand (manufacturing)
Percentage
19705
197912
