The minister's figures of recent prices compared, I understand, with those of last December seem to indicate a rather satisfactory situation, that is to say, that from the point of view of the customs administration the prices for duty purposes are now somewhat higher. But I should like to get at this point. Could we get figures showing comparative prices some months earlier? Furthermore, and this is particularly what I want to get, how many reports have

been received in response to the two directives which were sent out? It seems to me that would give us an indication as to how large a situation there was requiring treatment.
