HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c101W
62. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will increase the amount of currency that can be taken out of the country for those participating in or visiting the Olympic Games at Helsinki.

Mr. R. A. Butler

No. I am satisfied that an adequate amount of foreign currency has been allowed to the competitors. Spectators have been allowed exceptionally to pay in sterling in the United Kingdom for tickets of admission to the Games, but we cannot afford any further concession.
