asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the contribution to exports in dollars and sterling from fully-fashioned hose in cotton and wool.

The value of exports of women's full length fully-fashioned cotton stockings in the first five months of this year was £147,000, of which £27,000 was the value of exports to the dollar area and £89,000 to the sterling area. Fully-fashioned stockings of wool are not distinguished from other types of wool stockings in the Trade Accounts; exports of women's full length wool stockings in January-May, 1950, were £114,000, of which exports to the dollar area were £1,600 and to the sterling area £38,000. These figures do not include exports by parcel post, details of which are not available.
