HC Deb 23 March 1961 vol 637 cc56-7W
34. Mr. Cronin

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will increase the amount of duty-free cigarettes and alcoholic liquors which may be carried on British airliners for sale to passengers, in view of the fact that the present amounts permitted only allow a ration to each passenger considerably less than is normally sold on foreign airliners and considerably less than Her Majesty's Customs normally allow to enter duty-free with each passenger.

Mr. Barber

An application for an increase in the allowances has been made and is at present under consideration. I will write to the hon. Member when a decision has been reached.
