HC Deb 28 April 1915 vol 71 c715
49. Mr. HOGGE

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there has been any large increase in the exportation of linseed oil to Holland from this country since the War broke out; and, if so, how much?


The quantity of pure linseed oil exported from the United Kingdom to the Netherlands from 1st August, 1914, to 31st March, 1915, amounted to 19,159 tons. In the corresponding period of the years 1913–14 the amount was eighteen tons. I should add that by virtue of an Order in Council, issued on 21st April, the export, of linseed oil is now prohibited to all destinations.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is a fact that a percentage of glycerine can be extracted from linseed oil?


I cannot answer that question without notice.
