HC Deb 13 June 1950 vol 476 c34
67. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the direct loss to the revenue incurred through the shutting down of the Haifa refinery.

Sir S. Cripps

If the hon. Member refers to Exchequer revenue, it is not possible to give an estimate of the loss. If he has in mind the loss of foreign exchange, I would refer him to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Fuel and Power on 8th May last.
