§ 52. Mr. MANDER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will consider the possibility of extending the concession made with regard to motorcycle taxation so that the tax of 30s. shall apply to motor cycles with engines between 152 c.c. and 250 c.c.?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
While my right hon. Friend is aware of the arguments which are urged in favour of the adoption of cylinder capacity as the basis of taxation for motor cycles with engines in excess of 150 c.c., he has not felt able to propose so extensive a change on the present occasion.
§ Mr. MANDER
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this concession would be very warmly welcomed by the trade, and will he consider whether it can be granted?
§ Major COLFOX
Can the hon. Gentleman give any estimate of the number of votes that the party might possibly gain?
