HC Deb 24 June 1964 vol 697 c95W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development why he allowed a person, of whom details have been supplied to him, to import 27,000 bees from Texas; whether dollars were allowed for this importation; and how this affected the United Kingdom balance of payments problems.

Mr. Heath

No import licence is needed for bees and payment may be made under the normal arrangements.
