asked the President of the Board of Trade the number and value of photographic cameras imported during the years 1913 and 1921, and also for each of the months of January, February, March, and April, 1921 and 1922; and the number and value of the above imported from Germany in each case?

The following statement shows the numbers and values of photographic cameras registered in each of the periods specified, as imported into the United Kingdom, consigned from Germany and from all countries respectively. The values shown are exclusive of the values of the lenses, which are included in the records under the heading, "Lenses, prisms, &c., optically worked, mounted or unmounted (including those imported or exported with complete instruments)," and are not, therefore, separately distinguished. Particulars for the year 1913 are not available, as importers were not then required to declare photographic cameras separately:
