§ 83. Mr. Edward Davies
asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent the import restrictions imposed by Australia and New Zealand on British 193W manufactures some months ago have been removed.
§ Mr. Mackeson
There have been minor changes in the Australian restrictions. Substantially, however, the restrictions in both countries have been maintained owing to balance of payments difficulties.
The basic allocation for imports into New Zealand in 1953 has been reduced to 40 per cent. of the 1950 rate, compared with 80 per cent. this year.
