HC Deb 13 February 1934 vol 285 cc1758-9

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many representations he has received as to the injurious effect of the Petrol Tax on the (garment) dry-cleaning industry; and whether he will consider this matter, and the question of allowing a rebate on the spirit used in the industry, when he is reviewing the tax in connection with his forthcoming Budget?


I have not recently received any representations in this connection, but I am aware that the matter has been raised on previous occasions. With regard to the second part of the question, all relevant factors are taken into consideration when particular duties are reviewed in connection with the Budget.
