HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 c8W
Mr. Linstead

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he is taking to prevent strategic raw materials, under British control, being shipped, under contract, to potentially hostile countries.

Mr. H. Wilson

A wide range of goods of strategic importance, including a number of raw materials, is subject to Board of Trade licensing control on export from the United Kingdom. Security considerations are taken into account in deciding whether an export licence can be granted. The general position is being kept under constant review.
