§ 41. Mr. MONTAGUE
asked the President of the Board of Trade the volume and the value of the imports and the exports of brooms and brushes in 1913, 1923, 1924, and the first 10 months of 1925, showing the imports from Germany, Belgium, and Japan, separately?
As the answer involves a number of figures, perhaps the hon. Member will permit me to have it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Will the Report of the Committee on Brushes be published before the Finance Bill is introduced, and the recommendations included?
