HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c288W
48. Mr. Turton

asked the President of the Board of Trade why he exempted 45 foreign gliders from the payment of import duty in the 12 months ended 30th November, 1967, but imposed import duty on components imported for the purposes of the business of British glider manufacturers.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

These particular gliders qualified for remission of duty under Section 6 of the Import Duties Act, 1958, whereas the components did not.
