§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
During 1930 the total declared value of merchandise exported from the United Kingdom to the Argentine Republic was £25,714,000 (of which re-exports amounted to £444,000). The imports from the Argentine Republic were valued at £56,744,000. During the first quarter of 1931, the value of the exports was £5,033,000 (including re-exports £72,000) and that of the imports £13,761,000. Similar particulars for the second quarter of 1931 are not yet available, but I will send them to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
§ Mr. GILLETT
I have no official information. The report of the British Economic Mission to South America, however, mentions that the amount of British capital invested in Argentina is estimated to be between £500,000,000 and £600,000,000.
