HC Deb 24 February 1959 vol 600 c135W
76. Mr. Houghton

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the termination of the Cotton Yarn Spinners Agreement, he will now permit the cotton industry to import the most suitable textile machinery available from other countries without payment of import duty.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

It is open to users to apply for the removal of duty on definable classes of textile machinery, and any such application would be carefully considered.
