§ 61. Mr. Bartlett
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that duty has to be paid upon mead and other British-produced liquors sold to foreign embassies and legations although they are entitled to import foreign wines and spirits without payment of duty; and whether he will abolish this handicap on British initiative.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall:
The Customs privileges accorded to diplomats do not include exemption from duty on British goods. I regret that this principle cannot be departed from.
