HC Deb 26 June 1950 vol 476 cc189-90W
Mr. Leslie Hale

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the reason for the continuance of the restrictions on the sale of decorated china.

Mr. H. Wilson

The reason is our need to earn dollars. There is still a big unsatisfied demand in dollar markets for the right types of domestic pottery and we cannot yet afford to allow production to be diverted to the home market.
