HC Deb 07 February 1956 vol 548 c165W
24. Mr. Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade the value of racehorses imported into and exported from this country during 1954.

Mr. Low

Racehorses are not separately distinguished in the Trade Returns. In 1954, the value of imports of stallions, mares and geldings was £5,287,000, and of exports £5,018,000. The figures include horses imported or exported only temporarily, for example, for racing, and do not, therefore, give any reliable indication of payments made for imports or earnings from exports.
