asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the decision to facilitate the free temporary import of educational, scientific and cultural materials is wholly confined to such as are approved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation; and whether he will make a statement.

These provisions are complicated; I am therefore writing to the hon. Member to give him the details.
