HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c29W
91. Mr. Edward Davies

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention has been drawn to the continuing and developing difficulties in selling primary products and consumer goods from the sterling area to dollar markets and what steps are being taken to secure greater equilibrium.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am not aware that the difficulties are becoming noticeably greater. The Government believe that a lasting solution of the long continued problem of unbalance in trade with the dollar area can be found only through the closest co-operation between surplus and deficit countries and the adoption by each of policies appropriate to its position.
