HC Deb 30 July 1954 vol 531 cc118-9W
Mr. G. Wilson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the further rise in export tax on tea by the Government of Ceylon will have a largely nugatory effect on the double taxation agreement of that country with the United Kingdom; and what consequential action Her Majesty's Government propose to take in the matter.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This matter does not appear to have any connection with the double taxation agreement between the United Kingdom and Ceylon: the second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
