HC Deb 21 March 1922 vol 152 cc262-3W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the total value of the trade, import and export, between Great Britain and Russia since the Anglo-Russian agreement came into operation?


The total value of merchandise consigned from Russia (including Siberia) which was registered as imported into the United Kingdom during the period from 1st April, 1921, to 28th February, 1922, was £2,793,129. The particulars available do not show what part, if any, of these goods were produced elsewhere than in Russia, or what quantities of goods of Russian production may have been consigned from the Baltic States and other non-Russian countries. Separate particulars for European Russia are not available. The values of United Kingdom produce and manufactures and of re-exports of foreign and colonial merchandise registered as consigned from this country to Russia during the same period were £2,507,028 and £1,306,553 respectively. Any exports from the United Kingdom which may ultimately have reached Russia but were consigned to other countries are not included in these totals.
