HC Deb 20 February 1911 vol 21 c1527

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much sugar beet was exported from the ports of East Anglia to Holland and Belgium during last year; how much it was valued at; and if he has any evidence that the sugar manufactured from this beet came back to this country and paid duty to the Government?


The registered exports of sugar beet to the Netherlands from East Anglian ports in 1910 amounted to 3,909 tons of a declared value of £4,133. There were no exports to Belgium. It is not possible to say whether any, and if so how much, of the sugar manufactured from such beets was exported from the Netherlands to this country.
