§ Mr. Emmott
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the approximate value of goods unconditionally exempt from duty under the Import Duties Act, 1932, which were imported into the United Kingdom during the year 1936?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Colville
The value of goods imported into the United Kingdom during 1936 unconditionally exempt from duty under the Import Duties Act, 1932, and not chargeable with duty under any other enactment is approximately £295,000,000. This figure does not include gold and silver bullion and coin, which are not usually regarded as merchandise, nor goods which are liable to duty but admitted free under various statutory conditions.
