HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 cc166-7W
37. Mr. R. Robinson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the ceiling in dollar values under which the imports of any particular commodity or product imported into this country from the United States can qualify as token imports; and what is the basis on which these figures are calculated.

Mr. H. Wilson

Under the 1947 token import arrangements, each United States manufacturer with a record of prewar trade with the United Kingdom in a token import commodity was permitted to send 20 per cent. by value of his average trade in that commodity in 1936–38.
