HC Deb 06 February 1951 vol 483 c1540
69. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has given his approval to the financial arrangements under which the Williams Circus is to be imported from Germany and established in this country, bringing with it permanent equipment such as trailers, tents and seating.

Mr. Gaitskell

Import licences are a matter for my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade. When an import licence is granted any necessary foreign currency is made available auto matically. My latest information, however, is that the circus is not to be established here and that some of the equipment which had already arrived is to be returned.
