§ 62. Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if motor tractors for agricultural purposes are liable to tax and, if so, whether he will suspend it for the present; if he will suspend the petrol tax on petrol for agricultural purposes; if he will suspend the import duty on imported American motor tractors for one year to enable tillage to be carried out as rapidly as possible, in view of the fact that in many tillage districts the severe weather has prevented ploughing practically since Christmas?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The hon. Baronet will, I think, find that motor tractors and motor spirit used for the purposes referred to are not charged with these duties.
