HC Deb 25 April 1929 vol 227 cc1049-50
27. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is intended to discontinue the Treasury deduction from the Road Fund income when payments from the Road Fund under Clause 80 of the Local Government Act become due?


I gather that the hon. and gallant Member, in speaking of a Treasury deduction, alludes to the sumptuary tax on private motor vehicles levied for purposes of general revenue. There is nothing in the Local Government Act which furnishes any ground for discontinuing this tax.
