IMPERIAL INSTITUTE
THE Imperial Institute was established to promote the industrial
utilization of the raw materials of the Empire.
The technical work of the Institute is carried out by two principal
Departments, viz., a Plant and Animal Products Department and a
Mineral Resources Department.
I ntelligence.-Special sections deal with enquiries relating to the
sources, production, uses and marketing of raw materials, and with
the collection and dissemination of general and statistical information
concerning them.
Investigations.-The laboratories of the Institute are specially equipped
for the chemical and technical examination of raw materials of all kinds
with a view to determining their possible uses and value. Full reports
are furnished on the composition, commercial utilization and value
of materials submitted.
Advisory Councils and Consultative Committees.-A number of technical
committees, consisting of authorities on the various groups of raw
materials and acting under an Advisory Council for each department,
co-operate in the work of the Imperial Institute, and a close touch is
also maintained with producers, brokers, merchants and users. Valuable
help can thus be given to persons interested in the development of
Empire raw materials.
Library.-The Library of the Institute contains a large collection of
works of reference relating to Empire countries and their products,
and is regularly supplied with the more important official publications
of all countries of the Empire and with over 800 technical and scientific
periodicals. The Library is open to enquirers from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on weekdays (Saturdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
Public Exhibition Galleries.-The galleries (which are open from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 2.30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays) contain
comprehensive collections illustrating the natural resources, industries,
scenery and life of each country of the Empire overseas. Conducted
tours by guide lecturers are arranged for organized parties.
Cinema.-Films depicting the life, scenery and industries of the various
countries of the British Empire are shown in the Cinema daily. Lectures
on Empire industries and countries are frequently given.
Empire Film Library.-:-The Empire Film Library maintained by the
Institute contains cinematograph films illustrating the industry and
agriculture as well as the life and products of the United Kingdom
and the Empire overseas. The films are available for loan to schools
and other approved bodies in this country without charge other than
the cost of carriage both ways.
Publications.-Numerous publications of an authoritative character are
issued containing information dealing with the various raw materials
and the related industries. Details of the principal publications are
given at the end of this volume.

INTRODUCTORY NOTE
Throughout the trade statistics in this document, materials imported
or exported on government account have been included as far as possible.
Trade statistics for India include, as from April1, 1937, the trade of
India with Burma, and exclude the direct foreign trade of Burma, which
is given separately.
The trade of the Saar territory prior to February 18, 1935, is
recorded with the trade of France, on and after that date it is recorded
with the trade of Germany.
Trade statistics for Japan do not include trade between that country
and the rest of the Japanese Empire. Trade figures for Korea and
Formosa include the trade with all other parts of the Japanese Empire.
Except where otherwise stated the trade figures are intended to
represent imports for home consumption and exports of domestic produce.
In the case of foreign countries, however, many countries include a certain
amount of " nationalised " goods, i.e. goods originally imported, but
which, if dutiable, have been charged with duty and subsequently reexported. Goods imported for " improvement " and re-exported after
" improvement " are also generally included.
The units of quantity adopted are the cwt. of 112 lb. (avdp.); ton
of 2,240 lb. (avdp.); imperial gallon and metric carat. For precious
metals the troy ounce of 480 grains is used.
Further particulars relating to the various minerals and metals
referred to in this summary will be found in the monographs published
by the Mineral Resources Department of the Imperial Institute (see lists
at the end of this volume). These monographs contain much information
which has a bearing on the statistical data recorded in this volume.
