HC Deb 03 December 1931 vol 260 c1250
89. Mr. C. BROWN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any steps have been taken to ensure that British nationals who sell goods abroad bring the money received for such goods back to this country, or whether they are permitted to retain such moneys abroad?


No restrictions of the kind suggested in the question have been imposed or appear under present circumstances to be called for; but it is certainly in the national interest that holders of foreign currency, whether from exports or dividends or otherwise, should repatriate the proceeds in sterling, and I have no reason to believe that this practice is not being followed.
