HC Deb 12 June 1939 vol 348 cc908-9W
Mr. Edwards

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has statistical information of the quantities of iron-ore, pig-iron, scrap-iron, copper, tin, nickel and oil imported into Japan in the period July, 1937, to April, 1939, distinguishing the principal sources of supply; and, if not, will he endeavour to get this information?

Mr. Cross

Information of this nature has not been published in the Japanese trade returns in respect of any period subsequent to July, 1937, and my right hon. Friend regrets that he is not in a position to obtain it.
