§ 46. Mr. O'Halloran
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will bring forward proposals for the sale of duty-free goods on air and boat services, between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
No. There has been for many years an understanding between the British and Irish Governments that neither will permit aircraft or ships plying between the two countries to load duty-free goods for consumption or sale on board. I see no reason for seeking to change that position.
