HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 c595

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether under the head of imports from the United States on page 240 of Vol. II. of the Annual Trade Returns for 1906, the item "all other kinds of machinery" is intended to include electrical machinery of all kinds; and, if so, why such electrical machinery to the value of £305,563 in 1903 and £289,973 in 1904 is not included in these years, though the corresponding values are included in 1902, 1905, and 1906.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. I am informed by the Board of Customs that they regret that the figures for electrical machinery were inadvertently omitted from the entries referred to, and that the correct figures are for 1903, £1,848,043, and for 1904, £1,658,126.
