HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 c2048W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the quantities of silk hosiery, artificial and pure silk, respectively, imported into this country during the year 1924; and if he can state what proportion of the pure silk hosiery imports came from the United States of America?


Except in the case of cotton and woollen hosiery, the declarations required to be made by importers of hosiery do not include a statement of the material of which the goods are made. I am, accordingly, not in a position to give separate figures of silk hosiery and of hosiery of artificial silk, respectively. The imports of hosiery of materials other than cotton and wool amounted in 1924 to

Stockings and hose (doz. Pairs) 1,015,154
Underwear (dozens) 60,243
Fancy hosiery (dozens) 294,962
I am not able to furnish the information asked for in the second part of the question.
