HC Deb 24 March 1925 vol 182 c275W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department the amount and value of tea exported from India to Soviet Russia during each of the years 1922, 1923, and 1924; and whether, or not, it has been paid for and in what form the payments have been made?


I have been asked to reply to this question. There were no direct shipments of tea from India to Soviet Russia during 1922 or in the first three months of 1923. No figures for later months are available, but I understand that there was a certain revival of the trade at the end of last year. My noble Friend has no information in regard to the last part of the question.
