HC Deb 06 April 1948 vol 449 c28
56. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Food what were the total exports of sugar and confectionery, respectively, to Canada during 1947 in terms of quantity and value.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Dr. Edith Summerskill)

There were no exports of sugar from the United Kingdom to Canada during 1947. Total exports of chocolate and sugar confectionery to Canada from the United Kingdom in 1947 amounted to 18,570 cwt., valued at £161,676.

Mr. Erroll

In future, could these figures be included in the Trade and Navigation Returns?

Dr. Summerskill

We will consider that.
