No, Sir, I am not aware of this. With the exception of cheese no imports of dairy products from the U.S.A. are being authorised at present. Imports of cheese are limited to an annual quota of £1·5 million c.i.f. for North America as a whole. Import licences issued against the quota are not subject to restrictions as to price.
