HC Deb 15 June 1933 vol 279 cc317-8
50. Mr. R. W. SMITH

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will find out from the British Government's representative in Sweden what was the average wholesale price at which kraft paper was sold in Sweden for internal consumption during the months of January, February, and March of this year?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

The British Legation at Stockholm state that they are reliably informed that Kraft paper, weighing not less than 40 grammes per square metre, has, during the past months, been sold for internal consumption in Sweden at prices ranging from 32 ore to 44 ore per kilogramme, the price varying with the circumstances of the sale. It is understood that these prices are general and are regulated by the cartel.
