§ Mr. HARRISON
asked the President of the Board of Trade the total value of imports and exports to Russia from this country for the first half of the year 1926 and the corresponding value for the first half of 1913?
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
The particulars for the first half of the current year are not yet complete, as the period has itself not yet expired. After the completion of the half year, the classification of the particulars will need some time. Meanwhile, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 1st June to the hon. Member for Ilford (Sir F. Wise) for the latest figures available, covering the trade of the first quarter of the year. These figures cannot be compared with those of 1913 owing to altered national frontiers.
