HC Deb 04 November 1958 vol 594 c32W
72. Mr. T. Brown

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now remove the restrictive quota system placed upon the importation of Dutch bulbs into this country, as the present system leads to the creation of a black market in the sales of bulbs.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

No. There are disadvantages in any system of import control. This restriction along with others is being continued for balance of payments reasons, but it is our intention to remove them as soon as circumstances permit.
