asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that a South Wales firm is offering a shipment of American dresses for sale, how many dollars were made available for this transaction, and why.

I have no details of this particular transaction, but I assume that the dresses referred to were imported under the Token Import Scheme. The scheme provides for a strictly limited volume of imports of certain traditional goods from Canada and the United States of America.
