HC Deb 13 March 1952 vol 497 cc1543-5
12. Mr. Douglas Dodds-Parker

asked the President of the Board of Trade what percentage cuts in the purchase of dollar tobacco are being made in 1952 on 1951 purchases from the United States of America and Canada, respectively.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Our purchases of dollar tobacco in 1952 will be substantially less than in 1951, but I can assure my hon. Friend that the cut will not fall proportionately more heavily on Canada than on the United States.
