HC Deb 24 June 1937 vol 325 cc1389-90W
Sir H. Croft

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the percentage increase in the imports from the United Kingdom into the British Mandated Territories between the year 1932 and the latest complete year available; and what was the corresponding increase in the imports into those territories from Germany?

Captain Wallace

It is not practicable to furnish comparable aggregated figures from the trade returns of the individual countries. Exports of United Kingdom goods to the British Mandated Territories (except Cameroons, Togoland and New Guinea) increased from £1,819,000 in 1932 to £2,553,000 in 1936, or by 40 per cent., while those from Germany rose from

with the average price of home-grown and imported potatoes over such period?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The following statement shows for the United Kingdom the estimated total production of potatoes, together with the quantities imported and the average wholesale prices per ton in England and Wales of certain descriptions of home-grown and imported main-crop potatoes in each of the periods September to August in the years 1927–28 to 1936–37.

10,027,000 to 24,569,000 Reichsmarks, or by 145 per cent.
