§ 41. Mr. HOGGE
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state why a licence to export ten dozen golf balls to Sweden by an Edinburgh firm has not been attended to for over a period of a month; and whether he can say how long on an average it takes to determine whether a licence can be given1?
§ Mr. ACLAND
If my hon. Friend will supply me with details of the particular case to which he refers, I will make inquiry. In the great majority of cases a licence is issued or refused within a week from the elate upon which the application is received by the War Trade Department.
