§ Mr. HARTSHORN
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?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
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.
