HC Deb 27 May 1946 vol 423 c124W
37. Mr. Jennings

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any manufactured industrial gloves have been imported into this country from the U.S.A. during the last two years; and if he will give the dollar value.

Mr. Belcher

Imports of industrial gloves are not recorded separately in the trade accounts, but in the past two years there have been imports from the United States of gloves of all descriptions, wholly or partly of leather, the recorded value being about £210,000. These imports were on Government account.
