HC Deb 30 July 1953 vol 518 cc188-9W
66. Mr. Stokes

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he has taken to ascertain how far the market for Scotch whisky in the United States of America has reached saturation point.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

None; but an excellent test lies in the figures of our sales of whisky to the United States, and, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, exports are being well maintained. In the first six months of this year some 3.3 million proof gallons of whisky were exported from the United Kingdom to the United States.
