HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 c1879
54. Mr. Gammans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what reply he has sent, or proposes to send, to the representations made to him by the Society of British Aircraft Constructors for the abolition of the tax on aviation spirit on the grounds that over 70 per cent. of this spirit used in this country is for work in connection with research on, and construction of, aero-engines.

Sir S. Cripps

I cannot anticipate my Budget Statement.

Mr. Gammans

Will the putting down of this Question remind the Chancellor of the importance of this matter?

Sir S. Cripps
