The official trade accounts of the United Kingdom show that the exports of the produce and manufactures of the United Kingdom to Canada in 684 the year 1896 were valued at £5,352,000; in 1909 at £15,688,000; and in 1910 at £19,683,000, or 268 per cent. more than in 1896. The hon. Member is doubtless aware that the imports into Canada from other sources than the United Kingdom show a very large expansion in the period in question.
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us what were the corresponding figures of the United States exports to Canada during the same period?
The Official Canadian Trade Accounts show that of a total sum of £19,600,000, the value of the imports for consumption into Canada from the United Kingdom in the year ended 31st March, 1910, goods to the value of £13,415,000, or 68 per cent. of the whole, enjoyed the advantages of the British preference. Two-thirds of the balance consisted of goods which are free of duty on importation into Canada from whatever source derived.
