asked the President of the Board of Trade what quantities of spectacle lenses have been exported since July, 1948; and to what countries.

The number of lenses for spectacles, goggles, eyeglasses or monocles exported between July, 1948, and April, 1949, was 767,000, of which 466,000 were exported to British countries and 89,000 to the United States.
