HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c235W
74. Mr. Haydn Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will allow new trade and technical publications to be published freely for distribution overseas.

Mr. H. Wilson

At present no new periodical may be published without a licence if it uses more than eight cwts. of paper in a four-month period. I have, however, reviewed the position in regard to new journals for overseas distribution and am now prepared to grant licences freely in suitable cases for trade and technical publications for export only.
