HC Deb 17 March 1919 vol 113 cc1703-4

asked whether licences granted for the importation of lighting glassware are transferrable; if they are not, is he aware that the attention of the Board has been called to such an offer having been made; and what action does he propose to take to prevent trafficking in these licences?


No licences are transferable without the express authority of the Controller of the Department of Import Restrictions. Information has been received that one concessionaire under the glassware ration proposes to sell his licences, and when he makes application for the licences suitable action will be taken to prevent the proposed sale.
