§ 33. Mr. Morley
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to enable a local education authority to obtain a rebate in respect of Purchase Tax paid on equipment and materials supplied for use in educational establishments.
§ Mr. Morley
Will the Financial Secretary ask his right hon. Friend the Chancellor, whose past great services to education we all appreciate, whether, when framing his next Budget, he will consider the abolition of Purchase Tax on school requisites?
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
As the hon. Member is aware, there are great administrative and practical difficulties in such a proposal.
