HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 161 cc210-1
16. Captain SHIPWRIGHT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the total monthly exports from this country have increased or decreased since 1st November, 1922, and what are the figures of the increase or decrease?


The answer contains a table of figures; and, with my hon. Friend's permission, I will have it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

The table is as follows:

The following statement shows the declared values of the total exports from the United Kingdom registered during the months of November and December,

Month. Total exports during month. Increase (+) or Decrease (-) compared with the —
previous month. corresponding month a year earlier.
1922. £ £ £

January 76,737,000 (+) 9,375,000 (+) 5,131,000

The figures for December are affected by the interruption of trade caused by the Christmas Holidays.

Particulars for the month of February, 1923, are not yet available.
