HC Deb 05 April 1927 vol 204 cc1856-7

asked the President of the Board of Trade the value of manufactured goods exported from this country TO Russia for each year since 1920?


The answer includes a statistical table, and I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.


Has the right hon. Gentleman any information as to the amount of the goods that were paid for, and the amounts owing when payment was repudiated by the Russians?


That does not arise.

Following is the reply promised:

The following statement shows the value of articles wholly or mainly manufactured exported from the United Kingdom and consigned to Russia (U.S.S.R.) during the years specified.

Year. Produce and manufacture of the United Kingdom. Imported Merchandise.
£ £
1921 894,000 97,000
1922 1,939,000 214,000
1923 1,698,000 382,000
1924 3,003,000 926,000
1925 5,031,000 2,276,000

Comparable particulars for 1920 cannot be given, as exports to the new Baltic States were included with exports to Russia in that year. Similar particulars for 1926 are not yet available.

Prior to 1st April, 1923, the particulars relate to the exports from Great Britain and Ireland. From that date they relate to the exports from Great Britain and Northern Ireland only.
