Particulars respecting our total imports from individual countries are available only for quarterly periods and not for separate months. The value of imports into the United Kingdom registered as consigned from "Germany" during the first quarter of each of the years 1913, 1920, and 1921 (and the last quarter of 1921) were as follows:

£
January-March, 191319,220,284
January-March, 19204,123,021
January-March, 19218,023,745
October-December, 19214,965,367
The weight of merchandise represented by these values cannot be stated. The foregoing particulars do not, however, relate to trade with the same areas. The figures for 1913 relate to pre-War Germany; those for 1920 to pre-War Germany, exclusive of Alsace-Lorraine; while those for 1921 are further exclusive of Memel, Danzig, the part of Poland formerly German, part of Slesvig (now Danish) and Luxemburg.
