HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1403W
Sir R. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that British officers and warrant officers serving in the Leeward Islands are not paid Import Duty allowances; and why this is the case when it is paid in all other West Indian Colonies.

Colonel Stanley

Yes, Sir. It has, however, been decided to reintroduce the allowance with effect from the 1st December, 1943, the date on which it was suspended.
