§ 20. Mr. HAMMERSLEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade what were Australia's imports of cotton piece-goods (yardage) in 1933 and 1934 from the United Kingdom and Japan, respectively?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The latest period for which the desired information is available is the year ended 30th June, 1934. During that period the imports into Australia of cotton piece-goods of United Kingdom origin were 125.0 million yards and, of Japanese origin, 48.3 million yards. These figures are provisional and unavoidably include a small quantity of linen piece-goods. The corresponding imports during the year ended 30th June, 1933, were 153.7 million yards of United Kingdom origin and 46.4 million yards of Japanese origin.
