§ 9. Mr. DENNISON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will supply derailed information as to the export and import of motor-cars, motor commercial vehicles, motor cycles, and parts thereof, together with the respective values for 1915 and the following years, giving particulars for the month of January, 1915 and 1925, separately?
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
As the answer is rather long, the hon. Member will, perhaps, not object to my having it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ following is the answer:
§ The detailed information for which the hon. Member asks would, if printed in the OFFICIAL REPORT, fill a considerable number of pages, and, as it is to be found in official publications, copies of which are available in the Library, I am venturing to give the references to those publications. If the hon. Member, after consulting them, desires any further assistance, I shall be happy to render it as far as I can.
§ Particulars of the quantity and value of motor cars, motor cycles, and parts thereof, registered as imported into and exported and re-exported from Great Britain and Ireland, are given as follows:
§ For the years 1915 to 1919, inclusive, in Vol. I of the Annual Statement of the Trade of the United Kingdom for 1919 (pages 32, 49, and 65); for 1920 to 1923, inclusive, in Vol. I of the Annual Statement for 1923 (pages 51, 52, 90 and 135); for the year 1924, in the Monthly Accounts relating to Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom for December, 1924 (pages 73, 174, 175 and 216); for the month of January, 1915, in the Accounts relating to Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom for January, 1915 (pages 73, 132–3 and 157); and for January, 1925, in the Accounts relating to Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom for January, 1925 (pages 5S. 120 and 147).
