With the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement giving the information desired.

Following is the statement:

The SECRETARY for MINES (Captain Crookshank):

Separate allocations and quotas for export supply have only been operative since 1st January, 1935. During the March quarter, the only period for which I have complete statistics, the disposals for the whole country for export supply were 979,926 tons or 7.65 per cent. less than the corresponding allocations made by the Central Council.
