HC Deb 16 March 1893 vol 10 cc226-7
MR. WHITELEY (Stockport)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade the quantity of Continental dyed and undyed yarns, also Continental woollen and worsted yarns, imported into this country during the year 1892, and during the months of January and February 1893?


It is not possible to give the information asked. Imported yarns, whether woollen or cotton, are no. divided into "dyed" and "undyed" in the import list, nor are woollen and worsted yarns distinguished. The details of the imports of cotton, linen, and woollen yarn for 1892 will be found in the Annual Statement of Trade which will be issued in a few weeks.
