HC Deb 01 July 1903 vol 124 c1020
MR. HERBERT SAMUEL (Yorkshire, Cleveland)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the exports of ships built in the United Kingdom, which are entered in the Statistical Abstract as undistinguished prior to 1899, were included previous to that date under other heads of exports; if so, under which heads; and, if not, whether in future editions of the Statistical Abstract he will substitute the words not included for the word undistinguished.

(Answered by Mr. Bonar Law.) Particulars of the exports of new ships and their machinery were not recorded prior to 1899, and are not therefore included under other heads of exports previous to that date. The alteration suggested by the hon. Member shall be made in future issues of the Statistical Abstract.
