HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 c231W
62. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he is taking to ensure that tyres suitable for use on military vehicles are not shipped out of this country without a licence since the new restrictions imposed on 25th June, 1951.

Mr. Jay

As from 25th June, all tyres destined for Hong Kong and China required an export licence, as was already the case for specialised tyres for certain military vehicles. In the absence of an export licence, the Customs officer at the port of shipment would not allow the exportation of any tyres to Hong Kong and China.
