HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c167W
38. Mr. R. Robinson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what proportion of the American artificial teeth imported into this country between January and November, 1947, and costing 502,072 dollars was re-exported; and what proportion was retained for the home market.

Mr. H. Wilson

Of the value of licences issued during January-November, 1947, for the import of artificial teeth from the United States, just over half were for total re-export. The remaining licences were issued without any condition of re-export and the goods imported under them may all be retained in the home market.
