asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will give figures showing the value of agricultural machinery made in this country which was exported to Russia in 1926, and the corresponding figures for the last completed pre-War year?
§ Sir B. CHADWICK
The value of the exports of agricultural machinery (including agricultural tractors) of British production consigned to Russia in 1913 was £1,103,293. This figure, of course, includes the exports to the territories which now form the Succession States: it is not known, however, what proportion of the exports went to those territories. The value of agricultural machinery (including tractors) consigned to Russia (U.S.S.R.) in 1926 was £23,773; and the consignments to the Succession States in 1926 amounted in value to £19,447.
