§ Commander Noble
asked the President of the Board of Trade what dollar value of cosmetics and shampoo respectively was imported from the United States in 1947; and what is the estimated value of these imports for 1948.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
Imports of cosmetics and shampoos are not separately distinguished in the Monthly Trade and Navigation Accounts of the United Kingdom. The total value of toilet preparations, including cosmetics licensed for import from the United States in 1947, was £4,960 No shampoo was licensed for import from the United States against payment. As regards imports in 1948, I have nothing at present to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Barrow-in-Furness (Mr. Monslow) on 18th December last.
