§ 22. Mr. C. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade the quantities of soap of all kinds imported into the United Kingdom during 1930 from British and foreign countries, respectively; and how much of the latter was consigned from Soviet Russia?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
During the year 1930 the total quantity of soap imported into the United Kingdom and consigned from British countries was 115,178 cwt. and from foreign countries 231,972 cwt., of which 34,365 cwt. were consigned from the Soviet Union.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
I think, without having the figures before me, that there has been an increase within recent times.
§ Commander BELLAIRS
Has the right hon. Gentleman made any comparisons between the price at which the Soviet soap is sold here and the price in Russia?
