asked the President of the Board of Trade what quantity of pit props were imported during 1947, 1948 and 1949; and what quantity it is expected will be imported during the current year.

The figures for 1947, 1948 and 1949 were about 644,000, 544,000 and 559,000 piled cubic fathoms respectively. It is not the practice to forecast future imports; those for the first five months of 1950 were 107.000 piled cubic fathoms.
