HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 c8W
Mr. Amory

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the interests of the modernisation of plant in the textile industry, he will remit import duty on machinery imported into this country in cases where the delivery of comparable British machinery is 12 months or more.

Mr. H. Wilson

The particular conditions in which duty is remitted on machinery are constantly under review and I am, of course, always ready to consider representations on this matter from the users and the makers of machinery.
