HC Deb 28 July 1913 vol 56 c56W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the value of the total imports into France in 1882 and in 1912; and what was the value of the imports for consumption into the United Kingdom in 1882 and in 1892?


The total imports into France, including goods subsequently re-exported and goods merely in transit, were officially valued at £238,476,000 in 1882. Corresponding figures for 1912 are not yet available. The values in the case of transit goods are only approximate. The value of the net imports into the United Kingdom—i.e., of the total imports less the re-exports—amounted in 1882 to £347,826,000 and in 1892 to £359,370,000.
