28. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade what were the imports from China for the first quarter of this year; and whether they included strategic materials.

Sir H. Shawcross

For figures of principal imports from China in the first quarter of this year, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. Chetwynd) on Tuesday last. The only strategic material included was tungsten ore to the amount of four tons.
