HC Deb 11 March 1958 vol 584 c32W
73. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent gold is now being imported from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Mr. Amory

Out of total gold bullion imports worth £300 million in 1957, £71 million came from the Soviet Union. Figures of gold imports have no direct relationship with the amount of gold taken into the gold and dollar reserves.
