§ 12. Mr. PHILIP OLIVER
asked the President of the Board of Trade the latest figures as to the imports of M.G. kraft paper into this country; and whether he has any information as to the number of firms producing such paper in this country?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The total imports of kraft paper (unglazed, glazed, and machine-glazed) into Great Britain and Northern Ireland registered during the first six months of 1930 amounted to 880,589 cwts., of a declared value of £837,107, as compared with 931,572 cwts., valued at £952,010, during the corresponding period of 1929. Separate particulars in respect of machine-glazed kraft paper only are not available, and 251 I am unable to state the total number of firms in this country engaged in producing this class of paper.
