§ 62. Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now make the promised statement on the system by which foreign visitors can make purchases in this country.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
Yes. The scheme adopted last season will—subject to minor modification—be continued. Under this scheme visitors holding United States or Canadian passports are able, when they exchange their dollars for sterling, to obtain a limited number of coupons entitling them to buy goods across the counter free of Purchase Tax.
