A NOTABLE RISE IN PALESTINE EXPORTS TO GREAT BRITAIN, IN COMPARISON WITH IMPORTS, FOR THE YEAR ENDING MARCH, 1937, WAS SHOWN IN FIGURES GIVEN TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS BY OLIVER STANLEY, PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE.

WHILE THE PREVIOUS YEAR PALESTINE IMPORTS FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM EXCEEDED EXPORTS, LAST YEAR THE HOLY LAND EXPORTED £3,017,000 (ABOUT $15,000,000) IN GOODS TO THE UNITED KINGDOM IN COMPARISON WITH £1,750,000 (ABOUT $8,900,000) IN MERCHANDISE IMPORTED.
