HC Deb 30 June 1955 vol 543 c48W
74. Mr. Russell

asked the President of the Board of Trade why restrictions in imports of lime oil from dollar sources have been removed in view of the fact that ample supplies can be obtained from the British West Indies.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Essential oils from dollar sources have been admitted under specific licences since early in 1954 in accordance with the Government's general policy of relaxing, wherever we can afford to do so, our import restrictions, especially on raw materials.
