HC Deb 06 July 1954 vol 529 cc143-4W
30. Sir E. Boyle

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that certain businesses are handicapped by a shortage of Dutch strawboard; and if he will now ease the restrictions on this import.

Mr. Amory

Yes. Import licences for the second half of the year have been increased. I understand that the licences should be sufficient to allow the import of all the strawboard which Dutch suppliers say is available for export to this country.
