asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the regulations which control the despatch of food and goods abroad by Polish nationals; and the amounts of food and soap which they are allowed to send out of this country.

:. The regulations governing the despatch of goods to any destination abroad are contained in the Export of Goods (Control) (Consolidation) Order, 1946, as amended by two subsequent Orders. An open general licence covering the despatch by parcel post, without export licence, by private individuals of certain quantities of rationed foodstuffs and other export controlled goods as bona fide gifts to private persons abroad, has been issued under this Order, and I am sending the hon. and gallant Member details of this concession.
