§ MR. REMNANT (Finsbury, Holborn)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade with regard to the exports to British Possessions of articles completely manufactured and ready for consumption, if he can state the principal items and Colonies which account for the decline from £46,500,000 in 1903 to £41,200,000 in 1904.
§ MR. KEARLEY
The principal items are apparel, certain iron and steel manufactures, steam engines, leather wares, railway wagons, and haberdashery. Practically the whole of the decline in question occurred in exports of these articles to South Africa.
