§ 40. Sir SAMUEL R0SBOTHAM (for Mr. POTTER)
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will state the ratio of purchases of British materials bought during the last 10 years for use by the Suez Canal Company as compared with the ratio paid by British 636 shipping of the total canal dues; whether a report for 1932 on this matter has been furnished by the official Government directors; and, if so, will he place a copy of the report in the Library or otherwise will he ask to be furnished with a report on this point?
§ Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE
I am in communication with the resident British director to ascertain how far the desired particulars may be available.
