The answer has been prepared in tabular form; and, with the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

I regret that comparable figures for the two periods are not available in the detail asked for.

The following statement shows the quantities and declared values of the United Kingdom imports, exports and re-exports of safety razors and component parts thereof registered during the periods July to December, 1925, and January to June, 1929.
