asked the Under-Secretary of State for Burma what quantity of teak was exported from Burma in 1938 and 1946, respectively; and, in the case of 1946 exports, to which countries the teak was sent.

During the financial year ending 31st March, 1939, exports of teak from Burma amounted to 203,596 tons. Exports which have only recently started again since the war amounted to 4,824 tons up to the end of December, 1946. Over half the recent exports went to the United Kingdom and most of the remainder to India.
