HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c151W
80. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many giant tyres were manufactured in Great Britain during November, 1938, and November, 1946; and how many were exported, respectively, during these two months.

Mr. Belcher

The output of giant tyres in November, 1946, was 203,202 which, although no complete figures are available, estimated to be three times the average monthly output in 1938. Details of exports in the two months are not available but exports of loose tyres over the last quarter of 1946 were limited to 100,000 which is estimated to be a smaller proportion of output than in 1938.
