§ MR. ARTHUR ARNOLD
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, If he can state what has been the total value of the exports and imports of Bagdad, Bussorah, and Bushire, for the twelve months last reported to the Government of India?
§ MR. J. K. CROSS
The latest trade statistics received from the Persian Gulf political Residency are for the year 1882, and show that the imports of Bushire were 102 lakhs, and the exports 65 lakhs. We have no Reports from Bagdad and Bussorah; but no doubt the Foreign Office will obtain them for my hon. Friend if he wishes it.
