§ 20. Mrs. Mann
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that gas and electric cookers are exempt from Purchase Tax only until an accident prevention fixture is attached when Purchase Tax is imposed on safety; and, in view of the large number of accidents, if he will remove tax from these cookers.
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. J. E. S. Simon)
Cooking stoves are exempt from tax whether or not they incorporate safety devices.
