114. Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many import licences have been issued since 1945 for arc-lamp coloured gelatines from the United States of America; and what has been the total expenditure on such gelatines.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
There is no record in my Department of the issue of any import licences since 1945 for arc-lamp coloured gelatines, as such, from the United States of America. It is, of course, possible that some may have been imported under a licence issued for some 187W more general description, but arc-lamp coloured gelatines are not separately specified in the trade returns of the United Kingdom.
