10. Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade the amount of imports and exports of cotton lace and net for the six months preceding and the six months following the imposition of the Safeguarding Duties?
The answer is long, and contains a table of figures. Accordingly, the hon. Member will perhaps allow me to have it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the reply:
§ The aggregate value of the imports and exports of cotton lace and net during the periods specified has been as follows:
|—||Jan.-June, 1925.||July-Dec. 1925.|
|Net Imports Retained||179,600||165,400|
|Exports of United Kingdom Manufacture.||1,247,200||1,002,000|
§ It may be added that the value of any cotton lace imported in postal parcels would appear in the trade accounts under the heading "Parcels Post" prior to the duty and under the heading "Cotton Lace" after that article became subject to duty.
