HC Deb 23 June 1927 vol 207 c2066W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether all naval ratings borne on ships' hooks are eligible for supply with duty-free tobacco under existing Regulations?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

Service tobacco is allowed duty free on His Majesty's Ships; it is not allowed to officers and men serving on shore except in a few naval establishments, where the privilege has specially been conceded by the Board of Customs.
