HC Deb 28 February 1928 vol 214 c188

asked the President of the Board of Trade which were the countries, other than France and Germany, from which we imported woollen and worsted tissues during the years 1924, 1925, 1926 and 1927, respectively; and what are the quantities and values of such goods?

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

The principal countries from which we import woollen tissues, besides France and Germany, are the Netherlands, Belgium and Czechoslovakia. Particulars of the imports from those countries in 1924–6 are shown on pages 253–6 of Volume II of the Annual Statement of the Trade of the United Kingdom for 1926. The corresponding figures for 1927 are not yet available. Imports of worsted tissues from countries other than France and Germany are very small.
