§ Mr. FREEMAN
asked the Secretary of State for India the country of origin of all salt taxed in India and the total value in 1929?
§ Mr. BENN
The total value of imported salt in India in 1928–29 was 146¾ lakhs of rupees. It came from Aden, Egypt, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italian East Africa, Tripoli, French Somaliland, Roumania, and in small quantities from other sources. The estimated value of home production (whether by Government or by private manufacture under licence) was rather less than Rs.500 lakhs in the same year.
