HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 cc1710-1W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the reason for the omission of gloves and cutlery from the schedule of dutiable articles exhibited at ports to travellers arriving from abroad?


As its title indicates, the schedule in question is confined to the principal articles which passengers must declare to the Customs and does not profess to be exhaustive. It is purposely drawn in a simple form, as being more convenient to the traveller. Gloves and cutlery were among the articles omitted, but as the result of experience it has been decided to include gloves.
