HC Deb 11 February 1952 vol 495 c133W
Mr. Philip Bell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of unrequited exports made since the end of hostilities up to the latest convenient date.

Sir A. Salter

I am not sure what definition the hon. Member has in mind for "unrequited exports." If he means the excess of current exports over current imports, the answer is certainly negative. If he has some other definition in mind, I invite him to draw his own conclusions from the Balance of Payments White Papers, Cmd. 8201 and 8379.
