HC Deb 03 December 1947 vol 445 c76W
76. Mr. Erroll

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is his policy for importing consumer goods into Malaya from U.S.A.

Mr. Creech Jones

The policy in Malaya is the same as that in the United Kingdom and everywhere else in the Colonies, that the supply of United States dollars is so short that only goods which must be imported and cannot be imported except from the United States are licensed for importation.
