125306 - Trade: Northern Ireland (Answered)

Mr Alister Jack
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what estimate her Department has made of the value of cross border trade between Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The Department has not undertaken an assessment of the value of cross-border trade between Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Department has however worked with colleagues across the UK to assess the value of external sales from Northern Ireland to Great Britain, which stands at £14bn.
