§ 60. Sir Ronald Ross
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that amateur rowing is the only sport which can always be watched by the public without charge, he will now consider abolishing Purchase Tax on racing boats and oars.
§ 64. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider, when making proposals for his coming Budget, making allowance for those who have bought annuities and who thereby pay tax, not only on income, but also on capital.
§ Sir R. Ross
Is it the policy of the Government that amateur rowing should be reserved for the rich alone?
§ Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite
Will the right hon. Gentleman follow the same procedure in this year's Finance Bill as in the last, by which a form of Dutch auction was conducted regarding concessions from Purchase Tax?
§ Mr. Dalton
I will follow the procedure of last year by listening to what is said on the Committee stage of the Bill before finally deciding to reject or accept a particular proposition.
