Overseas Trade: Burma

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what records his Department keeps of which UK registered companies are trading (a) with and (b) in Burma. (160100)

We do not actively keep records of which UK registered companies are trading with, or in Burma. However, we do follow reports of companies activities produced by the UN, NGOs and other organisations. We monitor the level of UK corporate activities through statistics from the Office of National Statistics and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, which show that trade and investment in Burma has fallen in recent years.
