HC Deb 24 July 1947 vol 440 c169W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider the issue of tourist cheques to visitors from hard-currency countries, whereby they may purchase goods and services free of Purchase Tax and other restrictions.

Mr. Dalton

No. This would lead to much additional administrative work, and I regret that I cannot see my way to adopt the hon. gembers's suggestion.
