§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what restrictions there are on trade with Cuba(a) generally and (b) in respect of medical supplies; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Needham
[holding answer 17 December 1992]: Cuba is on the UK list of destinations for which export licence applications are subject to special licensing procedures. Apart from imports of bananas which are subject to "dollar quota" licensing, there are no UK restrictions on imports from Cuba which are not applied more generally against imports from all sources.
