HC Deb 14 March 1929 vol 226 c1287W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the amount, separately, of exports of steel melting scrap, old steel rails, wrought iron scrap, and cast iron scrap from Great Britain for each of the two years 1927 and 1928?

For particulars of the total exports of "old scrap iron and steel, fit only for re-manufacture" I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by the President of the Board of Trade on 5th March to the hon. Member for Neath (Mr. Jenkins), of which I am sending him a copy.
