HC Deb 24 July 1941 vol 373 cc1079-80W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Home Secretary from what sources he has assessed the value of the bloodstock exported from this country at £600,000; and what is the average annual value of such exports over the past 15 years or convenient period?

Mr. H. Morrison

As my hon. Friend was informed in answer to his Question of 9th April, separate figures for the value of bloodstock exports are not available. The Board of Trade returns however show that, excluding re-exports, the declared value of mares and stallions exported during the past 15 years averaged £621,000 per annum. These were the figures I had in mind during the Debate on 2nd July when I gave the rough estimate to which my hon. Friend refers.
