asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make representations to the Brazilian Government with a view to securing the release of currency to enable payment to be made for British imports into Brazil.

His Majesty's Government are concerned at the present delays in payments to British exporters, which are to some extent due to a seasonal shortage of sterling in Brazil, and are already discussing with the Brazilian authorities ways and means of expediting payment. I do not think that any useful purpose would be served at present by making formal representations.
