§ 38. Mr. ADAMSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade the total tonnage of sugar used in the confectionery trade in Great Britain, with the amounts of beet and cane sugar used, respectively, during the last available year?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The only information available relates to the year 1924, and for that year the information is not complete. From the partial information furnished at the Third Census of Production by firms in the cocoa and sugar confectionery trades it is estimated that in 1924 the consumption of sugar by these firms was about 162,500 tons. This figure includes sugar used in making other cocoa products as well as in confectionery. Separate details regarding cane and beet sugar were not recorded.
§ Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
Are there not figures available to the President of the Board of Trade in connection with the Greene Report?
