HC Deb 27 April 1938 vol 335 cc126-7W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, for the purpose of stimulating the export of finished engineering plant, including steering gear, ordered from abroad, he will take steps to enable parts required for the completion of such plant or gear made abroad to be admitted to this country duty free; and whether he has any statement to make on the subject?

Mr. R. S. Hudson:

Provision already exists for the allowance of drawback of the duty paid on machinery and articles liable to duty as parts of machinery which are imported solely for assembly in engineering plant or similar goods for exportation.
