62460 Correspondence with the Board of Trade concerning waiving of 'Imperial Preference' for IBM equipment imported into Australia, Jan 1959
LEO Computers receives two letters with very similar text sent on the same day by The Board of Trade, asking if they (LEO) are currently producing equipment equivalent to that produced by IBM. The request concerns the waiver of 'Imperial Preference' for IBM computer equipment being imported into Australia. The Board of Trade essentially is asking if LEO Computers are making equipment commercially available which could be considered equivalent to the IBM 650 - if so, the 'Imperial Preference' shouldn't be waived as they would encourage businesses in Australia (and other, at the time, British territories) to favour equipment made by British companies.
