HC Deb 13 September 1887 vol 321 cc467-8
CAPTAIN COLOMB&c.) (Tower Hamlets, Bow,

asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, Whether any record is kept of the quantities and values of foreign manufactured goods imported into the United Kingdom for home consumption or trans-shipment, and which, though manufactured abroad, bear the names or trade marks of British manufacturing establishments at home; if so, whether this information will in future be included in the Board of Trade Returns; and, if not, whether the collection of such information will be provided for with a view to publication?

THE SECRETARY (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) () Liverpool, East Toxteth

The goods referred to by the hon. and gallant Member are prohibited to be imported, and there, consequently, can be no record of their importation.
