HC Deb 07 December 1926 vol 200 cc1896-7

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider, before the next. Budget, the advisability of extending the relief of motor-licence duties to cars manufactured at a more recent date than 1912?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have been asked to reply. I would refer my hon. Friend to the question asked on 16th February by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Newbury, and to my reply thereto, of which I am sending him a copy.


Is it not a fact that some of these cars are 13 years old, and that the, value is not so much as the annual licence paid?

Colonel ASHLEY

My hon. Friend is under a misapprehension. It has nothing to do with the age of the car.
