HC Deb 07 May 1923 vol 163 c1898
58. Mr. RILEY

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department the value and weight of agricultural machinery exported from Great Britain to Russia in the years 1913, 1920, 1921, and 1922, respectively?

Lieut.-Colonel BUCKLEY

As the answer to this question contains tables of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The following statement gives the weight and value of the exports of agricultural machinery, registered as consigned from the United Kingdom to Russia in each of the years specified.

(a) The produce or manufacture of the United Kingdom.

Tons. £
1913 26,729 1,103,293
1920 149 15,180
1922 13 4,991

(b) Foreign or Colonial manufacture.

Tons. £
1913 8,932 273,118
1921 369 26,843
1922 993 70,014

The figures for 1913 and 1920 relate to exports to pre-War Russia, those for 1921 and 1922 relate to exports to post-War Russia. Machinery consigned to countries bordering on Russia is not included, even though subsequently forwarded to Russia.
