British factories.

The scope of the embargo has been reduced. Items 1380 (centri- fugal and axial flow compressors and blowers), 1410 (tankers) and 1744 (pentaerythritol tetranlitrate) have been deleted 'and there are relaxations on other items including 1088 (gear making machinery), 1145 (liqUJid' gas containers), 1526 (communication cable), 1545 (transistors), 1572 (recording and/or reproducing equipment), 1584 (oscilloscopes), 1715 (boron), 1754 (p.t.f.e.) and 1781 (lubricants). Items 1360, 1530 and 1566 have been amended and are now incor- porated in the new definition of item 1355 (valve making and semi- conductor making machinery). The overall effect has been to reduce the coverage of these four items. Item 1255 (diesel engines) has been transferred to the Munitions List (M.L.9) and item 1106 has been transferred to the Atomic Energy List (A.E.l9). Only one new item has been added to the list covering p.t.f.e. extrusion machinery (1306). For ease of reference all amendments have been sidelined.
