HC Deb 04 March 1930 vol 236 cc263-4W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can give information as to the increased output, increased numbers employed, and increased plant in operation in the British wrapping-paper industry since the application of a Safeguarding duty on imported wrapping paper?

31st January last. The total declared value of such wood and timber was £7,491,050.


Owing to the incomplete nature of the information available in the Department, I regret that I am unable to give the detailed figures for which the hon. and gallant Member asks. Periodical returns covering a substantial proportion of the trade have been received only since the beginning; of 1929.
