5. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can state the amount of the Various alkaloids of opium manufactured at the Government's factory at Ghazipur during the 12 months ended to the last convenient date; the amount derived from the sale; and the countries to which it is generally exported?


I am circulating this information.

Following is the information:

In the 12 months ended with September, 1928, 916 lbs. of alkaloids of opium were manufactured at Ghazipur. The proceeds of sales during that period were Rs. 97,463. None was exported except to the United Kingdom, and since the period in question export has been suspended.
