Repayment of Duties.

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act. – in the House of Commons on 19th June 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. FOOT:

20.

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that importers who have paid duties on commodities afterwards removed from the list of articles dutiable under Part I of the Safeguarding of Industries Act have been refused repayment of the duties direct, but can obtain a refund of the duties as duties paid on re-exports if they ship the articles to, say, Rotterdam and back; and whether, in these circumstances, he will obtain powers, if necessary, to repay such duties at once without compellling traders to incur the unnecessary expense above referred to?
