HC Deb 28 July 1953 vol 518 c1065
5. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what arrangements are permissible under his regulations for the payment in the United States of America of moneys collected in this country for charitable purposes.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Charities incorporated in the United Kingdom are allowed to remit funds to the United States of America, as to other countries, according to their reasonable needs and commitments. Individual subscriptions to charities incorporated abroad are not normally permitted.

Mr. Jeger

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a fund which has recently been established in this country whereby moneys are collected ostensibly for the relief of the children of the recently executed Rosenbergs in America? Will the Chancellor make sure that facilities are provided for this money to be sent to America in order to prevent it being spent on Communist propaganda in this country?

Mr. Butler

I will certainly consider any representations which the hon. Member makes.
