2. Mr. ALEXANDER
further asked the production, actual or estimated, of silk and artificial silk manufactures in this country for the six months before and the six months after the imposition of the safeguarding duties?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I am sorry I cannot give the particulars desired by the hon. Gentleman. I can only say that in the second half of 1925 about 14,100,000 lbs. of artificial silk were charged with Excise Duty.
