§ 39. Mr. HANNON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention has been called to the circulation in packages of a certain cigarette known as Kensitas of coupons representing the flags of the British Empire, with the words "Printed in U.S.A." at the bottom; and if the appropriate duty is being collected on the importation of these coupons printed in a foreign country?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
§ Mr. HANNON
That being so, does my hon. Friend know of any reason why these cards should not be printed in this country instead of being imported from the United States?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I know of no reason, but, because they are not printed in this country, they pay a duty.
