HC Deb 17 May 1971 vol 817 c209W
Mr. Proudfoot

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will remove the import tariff of 105 per cent, on airships.

Mr. Anthony Grant

If an adequate case is made out by the main United Kingdom interests concerned for removal or temporary suspension of this duty, I am willing to consider it in the usual way against the criteria laid down in the Import Duties Act, 1958.
