§ MR. WINSTON CHURCHILL (Oldham)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he is in a position to state what decision has been arrived at by the Government of India with regard to the import duties on instruments of military bands.
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
It has been decided that musical instruments which are the property of the regimental bands shall be exempt from Customs duty. A notification on the subject is being prepared and will be issued before the next trooping season.
