§ 48. Mr. Stodart
asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the percentage increase as between 1959, 1960 and 1961 to date in the numbers of gallons of Scotch whisky sold abroad of an age less than that at which it may be sold in this country.
§ Mr. Erroll
Separate figures for exports of immature whisky are not available but it is estimated that in 1960 compared with 1959 exports in proof gallons increased by about 70 per cent., while in the first nine months of 1961 compared with the same period last year exports increased by about 40 per cent. These exports represent 1 per cent. of the value and 3 per cent. of the volume of our total exports of whisky.
