§ Mr. EDEN
Since the coming into force of sanctions on 18th November, 1935, the Board of Trade have issued licences to import Italian textiles of a total value of £8 0s. 8d. These goods represented private purchases which the Board of Trade were satisfied had been fully paid for before 19th October, 1935. Consequently, they were exempted from the application of sanctions, in accordance with the terms of a decision of the Co-ordination Committee of 2nd November, 1935.
§ Mr. HOLDSWORTH
Will the right hon. Gentleman apply to the Board of Trade, as Members of this House have brought this information to their notice? Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that tremendous quantities of goods are coming through Austria from Italy?
