§ 66. Mr. Wootton-Davies
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will instruct his financial and economic advisers to consider the adoption of procedure under which imports into Great Britain from countries which have defaulted on British investments or which endeavour to liquidate British organisations on unfair lines, will be proportionately restricted until improvement in their methods is manifested.
§ Mr. Assheton
It is the policy of His Majesty's Government to give full support to British holders of overseas investments, but, generally speaking, I think that our import policy has to be decided primarily on the basis of other considerations. At present, imports into this country are limited to those essential to the successful prosecution of the war.
