HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c172W
83. Sir W. Darling

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether oil sold by Anglo-Persian and North Borneo Companies to American firms is paid for in sterling or dollars; and, if payment is in dollars, what is the sum involved.

Mr. Gaitskell

I am informed that payment is sometimes made in sterling and sometimes in dollars. I have no information regarding the dollar receipts resulting from these commercial transactions.
