HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c225W
Mr. Costain

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many baby sealskins were imported in the 12 months to the last convenient date.

Mr. Dell

Sealskins are not separately distinguished in the trade statistics. However, it is estimated that between 5,000 and 10,000 seal pelts, including both adults and pups, are used annually in the United Kingdom.
