HC Deb 20 April 1948 vol 449 c120W
53. Mr. J. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the cost involved in the facilities which have been made available to the British association football team to play against Spain.

Sir S. Cripps

This visit is still under discussion with the Spanish authorities. No facilities, therefore, have as yet been made available.

60. Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is permitted to take out of the country amounts in excess of £5 when travelling on holiday to Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Poland and Roumania; and in respect of which of these countries negotiations are being conducted to increase the permitted sum.

Sir S. Cripps

Travellers are permitted to take with them not more than £5 in sterling notes, but this money is for use to meet their travelling expenses on British transport, or for their immediate needs on returning to this country. Notes so taken may not be spent or exchanged abroad and they are not, therefore, available for holiday purposes in Czechoslovakia or any other country. No negotiations for the resumption of tourist travel are being conducted with any of the countries named in the Question, although the question is likely to be discussed in connection with the trade talks with Yugoslavia which will probably be resumed shortly.
