§ 58. Mr. Russell
asked the President of the Board of Trade the total value of imports from Commonwealth countries which enjoyed Imperial Preference in the year ended 31st March, 1956.
§ Sir D. Eccles
I regret that the statistics for which my hon. Friend asks could not be collated without an immense amount of work which I am unwilling to place upon the Departments concerned, but in round figures about one half of our imports from the Commonwealth benefit from Imperial Preference.
