HC Deb 11 February 1941 vol 368 c1233W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that collection of import duty seriously retards the war effort by causing delays at ports and, as any duty collected is eventually paid back by the Government, plus considerable profit to manufacturers, he will consider abolishing this useless and wasteful formality?

Sir K. Wood

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the Question he asked on 28th November last.
