HC Deb 23 June 1936 vol 313 cc1569-70
14. Mr. DAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number and particulars of tanks for which licences have been issued for export by his Department during the past six years; and by which countries these tanks were ordered?


During the period 1st January, 1930, to 31st December, 1935, licences were issued covering the export of 46 light amphibian tanks, 234 other light tanks and 21 medium weight tanks. With regard to the last part of the question, as the hon. Member has previously been informed, it would not be in the public interest to give particulars of the countries by which these tanks were ordered.


Can the Minister say whether any of these tanks were obsolete stock?
