asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department the value of the imports of the mandated territory of South-West Africa from the United Kingdom, the United States, and Germany, respectively, in the years 1928 and 1929; and if he will indicate any special measures adopted by His Majesty's Government to extend the trade of Great Britain in that territory?

As the reply, which in-eludes a number of figures, is rather long, I propose, with the hon. Member's consent, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Is it not a fact that the German trade is constantly on the increase, and what steps are the Department taking to secure that our trade gets fair play?

When the hon. Member gets the answer, he will see what we are doing. We constantly have the point before us.
