§ 39. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the total net dollar deficit on food imports by the Colonies.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The colonies have no net dollar deficit, in the sense that their total payments for imports of all kinds are more than covered by their total dollar earnings.
§ Mr. Thornton-Kemsley
Can the Under-Secretary say how much of the amount allotted to the United Kingdom under the Marshall plan will have to be diverted for use by the Colonies?
