HC Deb 16 December 1952 vol 509 c148W
50. Mr. Awbery

asked the President of the Board of Trade the total output of nylon yarn in Great Britain for 1951 and to the latest date on which figures are available for 1952; and what amount was exported.

Mr. H. Strauss

Production of nylon continuous filament yarn amounted to rather more than 10,000,000 lb. in 1951. During 1952 production has continued at about that rate. Nylon yarn exported is not separately distinguished in the Trade Returns from other artificial silk yarn.
