§ Mr. Keeling
asked the Chancellor of he Exchequer the annual amount received in dollars from sales by British authors to U.S. publishers; and the amount expended in dollars on purchases by British publishers from U.S. authors.
§ Mr. Dalton
The first figure is not recorded. Our annual dollar outgoings, in literary and artistic royalties, including outright purchase and payments for literary contributions, are about 600,000 dollars.
