HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2055-6W
Colonel DAY

asked the Home Secretary how much opium was purchased by factories in Great Britain during the year 1924; how much morphia; how much heroin; how much codeine was manufactured by the manufacturers in Great Britain during 1924; and haw much of each of these narcotics was sent abroad?


The compilation of the statistics for 1924 is not yet completed, and I am able at the present moment to give only the figures of manufacture asked for which must be regarded as provisional. They are as follows:

Morphine 99,400
Heroin 16,700
Codeine 153,300
