HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1230W
Mr. G. White

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the increased delays in passing importation of machine tools through the Customs House, and particularly, whether he is aware that the delays have increased from 24 hours to three or four days; and whether he will take whatever steps are necessary to amend the regulations in those cases where the tools are required for national purposes?

Captain Crookshank

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, but if the hon. Member will give me details of any of the cases he has in mind, I will have inquiry made.
