§ 8. Mr. Ian Harvey
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now abolish Purchase Tax on sticks provided for blind people.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
I have had to refuse many requests for relief in favour of particular users of taxable goods. I understand how necessary these sticks are for the blind. I will take this into account when I am able to review the incidence of the tax on such articles.
