§ SIR HENRY FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)
To ask the President of the Board of Trade when the Statistical Abstracts for the United Kingdom, the Colonies, and Foreign Countries will be circulated.
(Answered by Mr. Bonar Low.) The Statistical Abstracts for the United Kingdom and the Colonies are usually issued about October and December respectively. Every effort will be made to publish these Abstracts as early as possible, but they cannot be issued until the requisite data are available. The Statistical Abstract for Foreign Countries will probably be issued in September or October.
