HC Deb 10 July 1916 vol 84 c31

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the possibility of making some concession in regard to motor and petrol taxation for officer owners of cars who have lost their legs or are otherwise permanently unable to walk owing to wounds received in the War?


As I explained in reply to a similar question by the hon. Member for the Chippenham Division on the 22nd May, while I have every sympathy with those who have lost their limbs in the service of the country, I am afraid it would not be feasible to recompense them for their sacrifice in the manner suggested in the question.
