§ 59. Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, as private motoring has now been practically abolished and running costs of all vehicles are now charged ultimately to the Government, he will consider removing the taxation of petrol in order to release staffs engaged on this work for productive work for the duration of the war?
§ Sir K. Wood
No, Sir. It is not the fact that the running costs of all vehicles are charged ultimately to the Government.
§ Mr. Edwards
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that his Department specialises in imposing unnecessary work on various Departments?
