§ 53. Mr. Snow
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the fact that the quota restrictions on the importation of Dutch bulbs into this country have been maintained on balance of payments grounds and that the April trade figures show a good surplus in the balance of payments, he will remove this handicap to Anglo-Dutch trade relations before the autumn.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
No. As I have explained before, these and other restrictions will be removed as soon as circumstances permit. I cannot forecast when the restrictions on particular commodities are likely to be relaxed.
