asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) what percentage of the total number of telegraph poles imported in 1938 were shipped in British vessels;

(2) whether he can give a list of the ships which carried telegraph poles, showing the quantities carried in each and the ports of loading and discharge, respectively, with approximate dates of arrival in this country?

Mr. Stanley

I have no information concerning the shipment of telegraph poles additional to that given to my hon. and gallant Friend yesterday by the Postmaster-General.
