HC Deb 12 December 1967 vol 756 c87W
66. Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied with the practice of Her Majesty's Customs and Excise in charging duty and Purchase Tax on imported goods paid for before devaluation at post-devaluation rates of exchange; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Harold Lever

Yes. This practice is in accordance with the law and I am satisfied that no change is called for.
