Indeed.

The reason that it is falling as a proportion of the whole is that the U.K. is successfully and significantly increasing its international trade with countries such as China, the US and South Korea.

So, it is doing this while ‘shackled by the constraints of EU membership’ as Brexit supporters love to claim. So this claim is demonstrably rubbish.
