58. Mr. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can state approximately the total value of the prohibited exports to Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden for which licences have been granted to individuals or firms located in the British Isles since the 4th August; and whether he is satisfied that the export of prohibited articles is practically confined to those goods for which a licence has been obtained?
§ Mr. BECK
The compilation of the statistics required by the hon. Member would be a lengthy and laborious task, and 1399 I should not feel justified in asking the Departments concerned—who are working under great pressure—to undertake it. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative.
