HC Deb 15 July 1914 vol 64 cc1919-20

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can give the value of the goods exported from the Bradford district to Canada for the month of June; whether he can say how that total compares with the same period of last year; and can he give the figures for the half-year ended in June as compared with those for 1913 and 1912, respectively?


No information is available with regard to the value of the exports to Canada which originate from particular districts of the United Kingdom. The figures which were given to my hon. Friend respecting the trade between the Bradford district and the United States of America were obtained by the courtesy of the United States Consular officials, and were based on the invoices of the exporters, which have to be deposited at the United States Consulates. No corresponding source of information is available in regard to trade with Canada.
