HC Deb 05 February 1942 vol 377 c1271
37. Mr. Mander

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he proposes to take to compel adequate financial support to the war effort from wealthy British subjects now in the United States of America, in particular, at such places as New York, Long Island and the New England Coast, Santa Barbara, Del Monte and Carmel?

Sir K. Wood

As my hon. Friend is aware, there are powers to deal with certain classes of British subjects now in the United States, who were resident in this country at the beginning of the war, to whom I referred in my answer of 22nd January, as well as those who passed through this country on their way to the United States from other countries. I have also under consideration the possibility of taking further powers to prevent abuses.

Mr. Mander

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he expects to issue these new regulations?

Sir K. Wood

I hope very shortly; they are now under consideration.

Mr. Hannah

Is Hollywood deliberately or accidentally omitted?
