HC Deb 26 November 1934 vol 295 c505W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to certain judicial awards and decisions, as a result of which it appears that foreign goods may be supplied to a representative in this country of the foreign producer at a valuation substantially below the open market price to all and sundry purchasers in the United Kingdom, and that this fictitious price then has to be accepted as the valuation under Section 15 of the Import Duties Act, 1932; and whether, in these circumstances, he proposes to take steps to amend Section 15 of the Import Duties Act so as to provide that duty should be payable on the open market price of imported goods?


My right hon. Friend's attention has been called to the decisions referred to by my hon. Friend, and the matter is receiving his consideration.
