HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 cc189-90W
61. Mr. Steward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will reduce the allocation of dollars for the importation of United States music royalties into this country in view of the present dollar deficit.

Mr. R. A. Butler

No. It has always been the practice to allow dollar transfers in respect of current transactions and I should not feel justified in making an exception in the case of music royalties.
