HC Deb 30 January 2002 vol 379 cc370-1W
Mr. Andrew Turner

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to raise the per person duty free allowance on gifts and other goods purchased in non-EU countries and then brought to the UK. [31132]

Mr. Boateng

[holding answer 28 January 2002]: The duty free allowances are set out in Council directive 69/169/EEC. Member states revalorise the monetary limit on goods, depending on shifts in the value of the euro. There is no case for a review at this time.
