HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 215 cc956-7

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the objections raised by the German Government to recent tariff changes in this country, he will state the volume of British exports of manufactured goods to Germany for the years 1913, 1924, and 1927, respectively, and the volume of German manufactured goods imported into this country during the same years?


Our exports of articles wholly or mainly manufactured to Germany in 1913 were of the value of nearly £27 millions, and in 1924 of £24½ millions. Our imports of articles wholly or mainly manufactured from Germany in 1913 amounted to £56 millions, and in 1924 to £32½ millions. Corresponding figures for 1927 are not yet available.
