HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 cc37-8W
73. Mr. Edward Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade what contracts have been approved by him for the purchase by British firms of German pottery; and for what country or countries this traffic is destined.

Mr. Marquand

No import licences have been issued to British firms for pottery from Germany. The purchase in Germany of pottery for re-export to the U.S.A., South America and Dominion and Colonial destinations is under inquiry.
