To ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can give the exports from Germany to countries outside Europe for the years 1882, 1892, and 1902.
(Answered by Lord Cranborne.) The published statistics of German exports do not admit of an exact separation between those destined for European and for non-European countries, owing to the fact that exports to the extra European portion of the Russian and Turkish Empires, to Algeria and Tunis, to the Azores and Madeira, and to Spanish possessions in Africa are not separately distinguished. The value of the exports of German produce and manufactures to extra European countries other than those mentioned is stated to have been £13,419,000 in 1882; £34,286,000 in 1892; and £47,892,000 in 1901. The figures for 1902 are not yet available.
