HC Deb 19 December 1967 vol 756 c349W
59.Mr. Brian Parkyn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to help exporters of goods having a high import content after the export rebate has been abolished on 1st April, 1968.

Mr. Roy Jenkins:

Devaluation should in varying degrees improve the competitive position of all exporters. Special help for exporters with a high import content would be impracticable and doubtfully desirable.

Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will continue the export rebate for those firms which can produce evidence of firm export orders at fixed prices; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Harold Lever:

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer I gave on 8th December to Questions by the hon. Members for Cleveland (Mr. Tinn) and Liverpool, Wavertree (Mr. Tilney).—[Vol. 755,c.411–2]
