Dear Mr MacNeil,
Following my recent appearance before the Committee for your inquiry considering UK Trade in Services on 13 March, I understand members are seeking further detail on the UK’s trade in services by country and service type, the sample size and typical response rates for
the International Trade in Services (ITIS) survey and some additional details about the planned next steps to trade asymmetries analysis and reduction.
We are providing this information to assist your inquiry and would be very happy to provide further clarification and advice on any points of interest to yourself and the Committee, as required.
