HC Deb 19 July 1955 vol 544 c19W
19. Mr. Hyde

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will waive the monetary deposit required by Her Majesty's Customs in respect of the temporary importation of musical instruments, thereby removing an impediment to members of the Orange Order resident in Eire who wish to attend gatherings of the Loyal Orange Institution in Northern Ireland.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Monetary deposits are rarely required for musical instruments temporarily imported by persons entering the United Kingdom for short visits and there is no recent record of any such deposit at the Northern Ireland Land Boundary.
