§ 11 and 12. Sir P. Macdonald
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) what percentage of the imports of the British 2147 West Indies and Bermuda are supplied by the United Kingdom and the U.S.A., respectively;
(2) what percentage of the exports of the British West Indies and Bermuda are purchased by the United Kingdom and the U.S.A., respectively.
§ Sir S. Cripps
In 1945, which is the latest period for which these figures are available, 14 per cent, of all imports into the British West Indies came from the United Kingdom and 28 per cent, from the United States. Corresponding figures for Bermuda are seven and 66 per cent. In the same year, the United Kingdom took 37 per cent., and the United States 12 per cent, of exports of British West Indian produce. Practically all exports from Bermuda went to the American con-tinent.
