§ 7. Mr. CRAVEN-ELLIS
asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the increased imports of tiles from 5,563 cwt. for the four months ended 30th April, 1932, to 94,862 cwt. for the corresponding period of 1934; and what percentage of this increase came from Empire countries?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I am aware of the increase to which my hon. Friend refers, which relates to imports of glazed wall and hearth tiles only. Imports of tiles from British countries are negligible in amount, and do not account for any part of the increase in question.
