§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual yield in Custom and Excise tariff of all 2, 4, 5-T imports into the United Kingdom; whether this tariff is raised in the form of specific tax or ad valorem; and what is the rate of such taxation.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
Separate figures for the weedkiller 2, 4, 5-T are not available, but the yield from Customs duty is likely to be negligible. Imports from outside the Economic Community are subject to an ad valorem duty for which the full rate is currently 9.2 per cent.
