§ 48. Mr. COCKS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the difficulty of distinguishing between aircraft destined for civil purposes and those destined for military purposes, he will take steps to ensure that no aircraft or aircraft necessities shall be exported from this country to any foreign country without a licence?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
No, Sir. I do not consider that any sufficient ground exists for placing this obstacle in the way of this branch of our export trade.
§ Mr. WILMOT
Would not some such measure as this have checked the rearmament of Germany unknown to the Government here?
