§ 66. Mr. Pearson
asked the President of the Board of Trade the sizes of chains imported into this country during 1937 from Czechoslovakia; and whether such chains were machine-made, foundry-casted, or forge-welded?
§ Captain Wallace
I regret that the desired information is not available from the trade returns of the United Kingdom. The Czechoslovak export returns indicate that some 70 per cent. of the chains exported to the United Kingdom in 1937 had links over 6 millimetres thick; the links of the remainder were between 2 and 6 millimetres thick.
