HC Deb 17 February 1939 vol 343 c2065W
Mr. Groves

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will state the amount and nature of the importation of glass bulbs and other material in connection with lamp manufacture for general lighting, miners' lamps, and automobile lamps, and the degrees and amount of tubing in connection therewith?

Mr. Stanley

During the year 1938 total imports into the United Kingdom of glass bulbs for electric lamps amounted to 40,267,273 in number, weighing 23,058 cwts. and valued at £109,838. Particulars of imports of other parts of electric incandescent lamps are not available, as they are not separately recorded in the trade returns of the United Kingdom.
