HC Deb 06 April 1954 vol 526 c222

I am also raising the Customs duty on imported chicory by 5s. 9d. a cwt. Full details of the change are given in the White Paper. This increase in duty is not concerned with revenue considerations. It is to give support and protection to the chicory growers in this country which have been shown to be necessary. The new rate will operate from 7th April.

Forward to
