Exact figures for imports during 1941 are not yet available, but the most recent estimate of imports for that period is 8,500 gallons. The quota allowed for 1942 is 73,500 gallons. Up to date licences to import 22,179 gallons have been issued, but I am unable to say what quantities will actually be imported.
Yes, Sir. I do not know whether my hon. Friend has any experience of trying to buy whisky. The quota allowed is comparable to what the doctor says you ought to have, the licences are the orders which you are allowed to place with a wine merchant, and the deliveries are what you actually get.
