HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 c93W
Mr. Colvin

asked the Minister for Trade if he has made a decision about the establishment of freeport duty free areas at air and sea ports following his consideration of the views of the Institute of Directors; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sproat

[pursuant to his reply, 8 November 1982, c. 18]: As I said in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Basildon (Mr. Proctor) on 8 November—[Vol. 31, c. 17]—we have decided that there should be a comprehensive review of the potential advantages of freeports. We shall be seeking advice from a wide range of interested bodies and individuals. We should be glad to hear from anyone who has views to contribute.
