Captain P. Macdonald

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether it is proposed to make arrangements whereby the aircraft to be purchased in the United States will enter this country free of duty?

Earl Winterton:

No, Sir. If any aircraft were purchased in the United States and imported into this country they would be subject to duty in accordance with the normal procedure governing supplies purchased from abroad.
