asked the President of the Board of Trade how many hearing appliances and of what value were exported from this country during 1948.

I regret that this information is not available for the year 1948, as hearing appliances were not separately recorded in the trade returns for that year. Since 1st January, 1949, a new heading has been raised for "Hearing aids and parts thereof," the value of the exports in the first quarter of 1949 being £67,000. Corresponding quantity figures are not recorded.
