HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c159W
71. Mr. Onslow

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the product, in each of the past four years, of Customs duty levied on Christmas gifts sent to individuals in this country by post from overseas; and what was the administrative cost involved in the collection of the duty in each of these years.

Mr. Harold Lever

Gifts are not always identifiable as such and it is impracticable to say what is the amount collected on Christmas gifts, or the cost of collecting it.
