HC Deb 15 November 1926 vol 199 c1526
28. Mr. G. HARVEY

asked the Minister of Agriculture the percentage of our total wheat requirements imported in 1924 and 1925; and what proportion came from British Dominions and from other sources, respectively?


The proportion of the total supplies of wheat and flour in the United Kingdom represented by total gross imports was 82.4 per cent. in 1924 and 79-4 per cent. in 1925, while the proportion from British possessions and foreign countries respectively was 43.2 and 39.2 per cent. in 1924 and 44.5 and 34.9 per cent. in 1925. These percentages do not, however, necessarily represent the amounts passing into consumption as to which no precise information is available.
