HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c165W
23. Mr. Haire

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that as a result of the present embargo on the export of books from Eire into Northern Ireland, Catholic schools in Northern Ireland are deprived of necessary text books; and if he will make suitable arrangements in this special case.

Mr. H. Wilson

There is no embargo on the export of books from Eire. Imports of books into any part of the United Kingdom are, however, subject to the grant of import licences. Children's educational books published for use in schools are already licensed freely.
