§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the volume and value of British exports to India for the first four months of 1924 and the corresponding figures for the same period in 1923?
§ Mr. LUNN
I have been asked to reply. Particulars of the trade of the United Kingdom with individual countries are 1861W only made up quarterly and annually, and figures for periods of four months are not available. The declared value of the exports of United Kingdom produce and manufactures registered as consigned to India during the quarter January-March, 1923, was £23,354,904, and during the corresponding quarter of 1924, £22,590,521. Sufficient details are not available respecting exports from this country to India to enable a comparison to be made of the total volume in the two periods in question; but for a limited number of the principal classes of commodities, the quantities exported to India are shown in the monthly "Accounts relating to the Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom" for the month and three months ended 31st March last.
