I am told that information on UK trade in goods is classified by HM Customs and Excise according to the "Geonomenclature of the European Communities". This geographic classification is an internationally agreed list of countries and territories against which figures for overseas trade are represented. It does not distinguish between Turkish Cyprus and Greek Cyprus and so the information requested is not available.
