HC Deb 19 January 1965 vol 705 cc11-2W
62. Mr. Stainton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his policy in regard to the substitution of quantitative import controls instead of the present import surcharge; and what administrative arrangements he is making for this.

Mr. Diamond

The Government's decision to reduce imports by means of a temporary import charge rather than by quantitative import controls and the reasons for it have been fully explained.
