HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 cc994-5W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state the value of sugared goods of different kinds exported from this country for sale in the Allied countries and in neutral countries, respectively, in the years 1915 and 1916, and the amounts, approximately, of sugar used in producing such goods?


I am informed by the Customs that figures are not readily available and that their compilation would involve an amount of labour which is not easily made available in present conditions. I hope, therefore, that the hon. Gentleman will not press for this information.
