HC Deb 23 February 1920 vol 125 cc1329-30W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the Value of our imports from the United States of America in January; and what estimated cost was entailed by the adverse exchange?


The landed value of the imports into the United Kingdom from the United States in January, 1920, was £68,568,520. As neither the conditions under which the various consignments were purchased nor the sterling amounts included for insurance and freight are known it is not possible to say what part of the cost was due to the adverse exchange.
