HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 cc1185-6
41. Mr. Low

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will state the total amount of each foreign currency expended on token imports during 1947; and whether he will set out the amount paid for each category of imports separately.

Mr. H. Wilson

The information for which the hon. Member asks is not readily available and would take some time to compile. If he will let me know in what particular commodities he is interested I will arrange for the information to be obtained.

Mr. Low

Would the right hon. Gentleman tell the House how many dollars have been expended, if he cannot give the information for all these foreign countries?

Mr. Wilson

Yes, if the hon. Member will put a Question down.
