HC Deb 25 February 1935 vol 298 c772
41. Lieut.-Colonel GAULT

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider exempting from taxation all petrol used for aircraft?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reason which my right hon. Friend gave in the Debate on the Report stage of the Finance Bill last year for being unable to accept a proposal in the sense suggested.

Lieut.-Colonel GAULT

Will my hon. Friend take into consideration the question of endeavouring to lighten the burden of these costs by relieving the industry of all unnecessary taxation?
