Mr. P. Thorneycroft

The value of our exports of whisky to the United States in 1952 was £18,481,000

Sir L. Ropner

Can my right hon. Friend say, without notice, what number of gallons that represents?

Mr. Thorneycroft

Yes. 6,301,000 proof gallons.

Mr, Follick

Has the right hon. Gentleman any information as to the amount of whisky exported to other dollar paying countries?

Mr. Thorneycroft

This Question related only to exports to the United States. If the hon. Gentleman wants information about exports to other countries, perhaps he will put down a Question.
