32. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what proportion of our imports of tractor vapourising oil during 1947 was paid for in dollars; and what proportion in sterling.

Approximately 48 per cent. was purchased for dollars and 52 per cent. for sterling.

Mr. Erroll

How does this compare with petrol?

Mr. Gaitskell

It is not very different.
