HC Deb 24 April 1941 vol 371 c251
39. Sir T. Moore

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is necessary to examine minutely, for Customs purposes, the effects of pilots who fly the Atlantic with war planes; and whether he will consider simplifying the existing procedure?

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Crookshank)

The desirability of showing every consideration to these pilots is fully appreciated, and Customs procedure, which includes non-revenue work on behalf of other Departments, has been simplified as far as possible subject to the requirements of other Departments on whose behalf Customs and Excise act.
