HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 cc234-5W
58. Mr. Parker

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he has taken to deal with those responsible for sending the Russell papers out of the country without an export licence.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Any manuscripts and documents over 100 years old which were included in the Russell papers recently exported were exported without a licence in contravention of the export control. The circumstances of the export will be investigated; action will depend on the result of the inquiries.
