§ Mr. Rees-Williams
My right hon. Friend has no specific information of such a prohibition and has not recommended it particularly to the Gold Coast Government, but all Colonial Governments have been requested to restrict imports of all goods which are not strictly essential, including goods of United Kingdom manufacture, in order to conserve sterling balances and make available the maximum quantity of United Kingdom goods 327W for export to dollar areas. If the Gold Coast feel that they can do without chocolate, my right hon. Friend would not wish to interfere with their decision.
