HC Deb 28 February 1921 vol 138 c1385
4. Major MOLSON

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, whereas this country accepts from Germany anything she sends to us, Germany will not import anything from us that can be made in her country, and even for spare parts for our portable engines and thrashing machines, which in the past have been sold to Germany, it is necessary to apply for a special licence to Berlin?


A special import licence is required for the importation of each consignment of goods into Germany, except in the case of a few commodities. These restrictive measures apply equally to all countries, subject to Germany's Treaty obligation to admit certain goods from Luxemburg, Alsace Lorraine, the Saar Basin, and those parts of Poland which were German before the War.
