HC Deb 06 September 1909 vol 10 c1071W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the total quantity and value of motor spirit imported into the United Kingdom during the past year from foreign countries and British Possessions respectively?


I am unable to give the information asked for, there being no separate record of the imports of motor spirit. The imports of petroleum spirit (i.e., the lighter products of petroleum, including benzine, benzoline, naphtha, gasolene, motor car spirit, petrol, etc.) in 1908 were as follows: From foreign countries, 41,807,995 gallons, valued at £1,118,847; from British Possessions, nil.
