The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

The answer contains a table of figures, and the hon. Member will perhaps allow me to have it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The following statement gives the registered imports of pig-iron (not including ferro alloys) into the United Kingdom consigned from France and other European countries in the year 1913, and in each of the months January to May, 1924 and 1925, respectively.
