HC Deb 06 May 1948 vol 450 cc153-4W
89. Mr. Bowden

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that larger orders from Sweden are held by hosiery manufacturers for all classes of goods, and that the Swedish buyers are unable to obtain import licences from their Government; and if he will ask the Swedish Government to implement the trade agreement on the strength of which these orders were booked.

Mr. H. Wilson

Yes. I am aware of the position. The difficulties in obtaining import licences for these and other goods will be the subject of discussions with the Swedish authorities which are about to open in Stockholm.
