HC Deb 05 June 1947 vol 438 c363
8. Mr. Keeling

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the price paid to exporters of timber from West Africa to this country is the same as that paid to them for exports to the U.S.A.

Sir S. Cripps

As exports of timber from West Africa to the United States are the subject of private contracts, I have no information as to the prices paid to the exporters under those arrangements.
