HC Deb 03 February 1948 vol 446 c260W
86. Mr. Teeling

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will allow more than one book to be admitted at a time for any one person in this country when such books are volumes in a set or part of a series of reference books.

Mr. Belcher

Under the open general licence for books, periodicals and other printed matter imported by post, only a single copy of a book can be imported at a time. Works consisting of a number of volumes can be imported under licences issued to prewar importers in accordance with the general arrangements for import of learned, scientific and technical books.
