HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 c1685
56. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the customs authorities charge the full duty on Rhodesian tobacco sent through the post to private purchasers in this country, and if the Commissioners of Customs will make such regulations as may be necessary to secure that Empire tobacco so sent may receive the preferential rebate when full postal charges have been prepaid?


The preferential rate of duty is charged upon Rhodesian or other Empire tobacco, whether imported as cargo or by parcel post, provided that its title to preference is properly established.
