HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c93W
134. Mr. Erroll

asked the President of the Board of Trade how he intends to remove the discrimination against imported Canadian Purchase-Tax-paying rubber footwear caused by the bringing of identical and similar British-made footwear into the tax-free utility scheme.

Mr. H. Wilson

I am aware of these difficulties and I am considering the position in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I cannot, however, say when it will be possible for any statement to he made.
