HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 c1422W
Mr. H. G. Williams

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state, approximately, what proportion of the imports into the United States of America from this country in the year 1935, which were imported duty free, consisted of foreign and Colonial goods re-exported from the United Kingdom?

Mr. Stanley

I regret that the information asked for is not available, as the import statistics of the United States of America do not enable a distinction to be made between imports of United Kingdom origin and those which are re-exports from this country.
