1. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade the estimated numbers of people from the United Kingdom who took holidays abroad in the years 1951 and 1958, respectively.

The Minister of State, Board of Trade (Mr. J. K. Vaughan-Morgan)

There were about 1¼ million visits abroad for holiday, business, and other purposes by United Kingdom residents in 1951, and about 2½ million in 1958.

Mr. Osborne

Are not those figures proof that Tory freedom does work?
