HC Deb 17 July 1916 vol 84 cc654-5
20. Mr. LOUGH

asked whether the exportation of tea from Sweden has been prohibited since the 11th instant; and, if so, whether this decision of the Swedish Government will affect the prohibition of export which' has been enforced in this country since the 29th June?


The exportaton of tea from Sweden has been recently prohibited. This does not, of course, preclude such exportation under licences issued by the Swedish Government. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
