§ 95. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the quantity of immature whisky which is being exported to the detriment of the reputation for quality of Scotch whisky properly matured; and what steps he will take to preserve the value of this important dollar earner.
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
I am aware that exports of immature whisky have increased over the last year; but exports of matured whisky also, both to the dollar area and elsewhere, have increased substantially, and I see no need for any action by the Government in this context.
