HC Deb 15 July 1930 vol 241 cc1112-3W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will supply figures showing the value of the United Kingdom exports of manufactures per head of population for the year 1913, and also for the year 1929, re-valued on the basis of the price level of 1913?


Using the comparisons made from year to year of the changes in average values of exports, it is estimated that the domestic exports from the United Kingdom, of articles classed as wholly or mainly manufactured, to countries outside the British Isles in 1929, valued on the basis of the prices of 1913, amounted to £7 11s. per head of the population of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The exports from the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Ireland) in 1913 of goods of the same class amounted to £9 1s. 4d. per head of the population.
