asked the President of the Board of Trade what restrictions exist on British trade with Cuba; and what proposals he has for changes in these restrictions.

Imports from Cuba enter Britain without restriction, except for cigars, rum, grapefruit, grapefruit juice and orange juice; the import quotas for these are the same for 1962 as for 1961. So far as British exports to Cuba are concerned, only the goods listed in the First Schedule of the Export of Goods (Control) Order, 1960, as amended, are subject to export licensing control, and Her Majesty's Government have taken no decision to impose any additional restrictions. Imports into and exports from Cuba are entirely in the hands of State trading organisations.
