HC Deb 13 April 1937 vol 322 c777
40. Mr. Leckie

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the respective duties payable per foot on British film negatives and positives exported to the United States of America, and also the duties per foot on the United States of America film negatives and positives imported into this country?

Mr. Runciman

The duty on film negatives, exposed and developed, on importation into the United States of America is three cents per linear foot; the corresponding duty on positives is one cent per linear foot. The duty on foreign negatives of the standard width imported into the United Kingdom is 5d. per linear foot and on positives 1d. per linear foot. Both in the United Kingdom and in the United States of America there are certain exceptions.
