HC Deb 28 June 1920 vol 131 c66W

Captain W. BENN asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can give the names of persons or firms to whom export licences have been granted during this year for any form of munitions of war in appreciable quantity, and the destination of the said goods?

Sir R. HORNE: I am afraid that objections would be raised if details of the business done by individual firms were disclosed, but I will send the hon. and gallant Member a list of firms to whom licences have been issued, and a statement showing the total of licences granted in respect of exports to different countries.
