§ 33. Colonel DAY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether any dairy produce of milk or cream imported from overseas is distributed in this country?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Burton Chadwick)
The answer consists of a table of figures which the hon. Member will perhaps agree to my circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Colonel DAY
Can the hon. Gentle-man say whether any cream has been imported into this country from overseas?
§ Following is the reply:
§ Yes, Sir. The imports of fresh milk and fresh cream into Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the year 1926 were as follow:
|Commodity and Country whence consigned.||Quantity Imported.||Declared Value.|
|Irish Free State||73,415||35,704|
|Other Foreign Countries||928||4,546|
|Total Foreign Countries||27,371||150,439|
|From Irish Free State||64,736||326,956|
§ I would add that nearly all the milk recorded above as imported from the Irish Free State was received in Northern Ireland across the Land Boundary.
