§ 8. Mr. Roy Jenkins
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what revised estimate he had made, in view of the import cut announced on 29th July, of the figure of £100 million as the amount by which imports in 1952 are to be reduced as against imports in 1951.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
In his speech on the 30th July my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade estimated that imports in 1952 would be reduced by some £400 million in comparison with imports in 1951. I see no reason to vary that estimate.
