§ 52. Mr. COUPER
asked the President of the Board of Trade what have been the exports during the past six months of British motor cars and parts of motor cars to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa; and what were the figures for the corresponding periods of 1925 and 1926?
The answer takes the form of a table of figures, and my hon. Friend will perhaps agree to its circulation in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
Have the figures of exports to New Zealand decreased since 1925 and 1926, while the American exports to New Zealand have increased, and can the hon. Gentleman offer any explanation of that?
