HC Deb 23 November 1950 vol 481 c510
66. Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider, in making his Budget proposals, reduction of the 25s. on horsepower tax on pre-1946 cars; and whether he has considered that fact, in view of the additional petrol tax, that it is a burden to maintain and run old cars.

Mr. Jay

I have taken note of the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion, but I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget statement.
