HC Deb 22 May 1947 vol 437 cc268-9W
22. Sir G. Fox

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is the policy for rowing eights to be built for export to foreigners; and what the number of such boats exported in the last 12 months and their price.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes. I understand from my noble Friend, the First Lord of the Admiralty, that the number of licences issued by his Department for the building of these craft for export in the year ended 30th April, 1947, was 81. I regret I have no information as to the number exported nor of the prices obtained.
