§ 43 and 44. Mr. Michael Astor
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) what quantity of sodium chlorate was exported from this country during the last 12 months;
(2) how much chlorate of soda was imported into this country during the last 12 months.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
Between October, 1947, and September, 1948, exports of sodium chlorate totalled nine tons and imports 291 tons.
§ Mr. Wilson
This export is of only nine tons compared with imports of 291 tons. In fact, we have no control over export licences for this particular commodity, and in view of the very small amount exported, I would not feel justified in imposing controls in this direction.
