HC Deb 18 November 1964 vol 702 cc65-6W
Mr. Prior

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will remove processed but unmade-up sheep skins from the 15 per cent. surcharge.

Mr. MacDermot

No. The raw hides and skins of heading 41.01 and raw fur-skins of heading 43.01 of the Tariff are already exempted from the temporary import charge. These exemptions cover sheep skins which have undergone only simple cleaning and preserving processes. Sheep skins processed further than that must bear the charge in common with many other products.
