§ 68. Mr. Harrison
asked the President of the Board of Trade if every step is being taken, in view of the need for conservation of dollars, to implement supplies of tobacco from non-dollar sources; and in 84W particular if he will endeavour to increase the supplies of tobacco leaf from Greece.
§ Mr. Belcher
Tobacco manufacturers are buying as much suitable tobacco as possible from non-dollar sources. With regard to supplies from Greece, United Kingdom stocks of Greek tobacco are at present adequate to meet demand but if manufacturers wish to purchase further quantities sympathetic consideration will be given to their requests for import licences.
