asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations have been made to him regarding the retention of the present system of duty-free alcohol and goods being made available to travellers after Great Britain's entry into the European Economic Community; and what replies he has sent.

Customs and Excise has consulted representatives of shipping, airline, and airport operators, and ships' store suppliers, about this matter, and my colleagues and I have received correspondence from hon.
