asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty when duty-free cigarettes and tobacco are to be made available for sale to the personnel at Royal Naval air stations in Scotland.

Discussions are proceeding with the Customs about the Navy's duty-free privileges. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that naval air stations have not been forgotten; but the subject is complex and it will take a little time before the regulations can be drafted.

Will the Parliamentary Secretary be able to make a statement on this matter in due course?

Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind that we hope this will apply to English air stations as well?
