What does my right hon. Friend propose to do to remedy this continual decline in our share of world markets? Does he not think that our whole economic policy with reference to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade needs looking at, with a view to seeing whether this trade cannot be increased instead of being reduced?
What matters, of course, is the balance of payments. I think chat my hon. Friend will also notice that the rest of the world is increasing in population rather faster than we are. Provided that we keep a share which results in a good balance of payments, I think that that is what we are after.
