Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Exports to Other Countries.

asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state the details of the exports to "other countries" for November, 1932, and November, 1933, totalling £96,761 and £155,234, respectively, as published in the Trade Statistics, giving in respect of each country the principal exports and the number, quantity or amount and value in each case.

It has not been practicable in the time at disposal to account in detail for more than the principal articles exported to these countries. I propose to circulate the figures available.

Following are the figures:—
