HC Deb 13 February 1947 vol 433 c532
75. Commander Noble

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many licences to import artists' paint brushes from the Continent have been granted since VE-Day; and whether he will give consideration to increasing these imports.

Sir S. Cripps

Four licences to import artists' brushes from France to a value of £1,000 have been granted since the beginning of 1946. Artists' brushes are also among the goods which can be imported under the token import scheme, but up to date no applications for licences under the scheme have been received.
