§ 7. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider publishing a statement showing the total imports during 1926 from each part of the British Empire, together with the percentage of such imports which received a customs preference on importation?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
The values of the total imports during 1926 from each Empire country are set out in the issue of the monthly accounts relating to Trade and Navigation for last January. More detailed information, as to the several imports making up these totals, is not available; but when it becomes so, I will consider whether a statement as to imports receiving a customs preference can be extracted from it.
