HC Deb 26 January 1937 vol 319 c757
58. Mr. Leckie

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the resentment in this country caused by the excessive duties levied by the Customs and Excise Department on Christmas presents from the United States and elsewhere; and whether, as the United States post office make concessions on Christmas and other presents sent from Great Britain by forgoing such charges, he will consider making similar concessions before next Christmas?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on 9th November last to a similar question by the hon. Member for Evesham (Mr. De la Bere) of which I am sending him a copy.
