HC Deb 20 February 1911 vol 21 cc1527-8

asked the value during the years 1908 and 1909 of the exports of goods wholly or mainly manufactured from the United Kingdom to Canada and the Argentine, respectively; what duties are levied by Canada and the Argentine on agricultural implements and locomotive engines imported from the United Kingdom; and what has been the value of the imports of food and drink during the same two years from Canada and the Argentine?


The value of articles wholly or mainly manufactured of United Kingdom production exported from this country to Canada in 1908 amounted to £10,527,000, and in 1909 to £13,516,000. The exports of such articles to Argentina amounted to £13,867,000 in 1908, and to £16,325,000 in 1909. The value of articles of food and drink (including tobacco) imported into the United Kingdom from Canada in 1908 amounted to £18,806,000, and in 1909 to £19,354,000, and the value of the imports of such articles from Argentina to £30,299,000 in 1908, and £27,701,000 in 1909. The details as to duties which my hon. Friend requires are too lengthy to be given in a verbal answer, and I am having a statement of the particulars printed in the Votes.
