§ Mr. R. Gibson
asked the President of the Board of Trade what were the imports of cod liver oil from Norway for the years 1929 and 1937; and whether he has any statement to make thereon?
§ Captain Wallace
Total imports into the United Kingdom of cod liver oil consigned from Norway amounted to 1,894 tons during 1929 and to 383 tons during 1937. Since the duty of 1s. 4d. per gallon was imposed on foreign cod liver oil under the Ottawa Agreements Act, 1932, imports from Newfoundland have increased and there has been a substantial development of United Kingdom production.
