asked the Minister of Supply what is the number of cars which have been exported during the past twelve months, but for which payment in foreign currency has not yet been made.

I am satisfied that the number is small, but I am afraid exact figures are not available.


asked the Minister of Supply whether cars allocated for temporary use in this country pending shipment abroad are included in the Board of Trade return as export sales; and how many cars have been sold in this category during the past 12 months.

These cars are not recorded as exports until they are actually shipped. The number in the past 12 months is estimated at rather less than 10,000.
