HC Deb 23 June 1915 vol 72 c1178W

asked the President of the Board of Trade, now the trade export returns over the five months of this year in tinned plates are increased about 100 per cent. over the same period of last year to Norway, what quantity of the increase in percentage has been sent from Norway to Germany, Denmark, and Holland; and if these plates, when shipped as cans, contained conserves only?


I am aware of the increased exportation of tinned plates to Norway, to which my hon. Friend refers, but the Norwegian trade returns do not include any statistics which would enable me to furnish the information asked for in the latter part of the question. The export of tinplates to Norway will shortly be prohibited by Order in Council.
