HC Deb 13 April 1927 vol 205 cc374-5W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the most recent estimates of the balance of trade from the year 1922 to the latest year for which figures are available?


The balances of income and expenditure in the transactions (other than lending and repayment of capital) between the United Kingdom and all other countries have been estimated as follow:

Million £
1922 Credit Balance 154
1923 do. 153
1924 do. 86
1925 do. 54
1926 Debit Balance 12
These figures should only be regarded as approximations and as subject to the considerations set forth in the article in the Board of Trade Journal for 27th January, 1927, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
