25. Mr. Crouch

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much unrationed cheese has been imported, under licence, during each of the last three years; and what was its declared importation value.

Since the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
