HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc187-8W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the President of the Board of Trade the volume and value in dollars of each specific item of goods imported into the United Kingdom under the Marshall Plan between 3rd April and the end of November, 1948; and if he will give a similar list in respect of additional goods which have been authorised for shipment by the E.C.A. but which have not yet arrived in the United Kingdom.

Sir S. Cripps

I have been asked to reply. The hon. Member will find the information for which he asks, by value, and for the six months ended 30th September, 1948, in the first report on operations under the Economic Co-operation Agreement (Cmd. 7570). I am afraid that it would not be possible, without disproportionate labour, either to supply these figures in the terms of volume or to extend them at this stage to cover the months of October and November. Figures for the current quarter will be published in the next quarterly report.
