HC Deb 19 April 1928 vol 216 cc350-1
42. Mr. HURD

asked the President of the Board of Trade for the latest available period, the proportions of wheat imported in the form of milled flour and whole grain, respectively; and the volume and grades of imported and exported wheat offals?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

The answer takes the form of tables of figures, and my hon. Friend will perhaps agree to my circulating it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The total quantities of Bran and Pollard and of Sharps and Middlings imported into and exported from Great Britain and Northern Ireland, registered during the year 1927 and the first three months of 1928 are as follows:—

Year 1927. January to March, 19.8.
Total Imports: Tons. Tons.
Bran and pollard 145,818 39,906
Sharps and middlings 66,507 25,350
Exports of United Kingdom Produce:

Sharps and middlings 4,959 1,765
Exports of Imported Produce:

Sharps and middlings 626 181

All the above figures are provisional.
