§ 17. Mr. Peyton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he anticipates will be the yield of the Purchase Tax on motor cars during the current financial year.
§ Mr. Barber
My right hon. Friend's Budget estimate included £145 million in respect of Purchase Tax on motor cars.
§ Mr. Peyton
Will my hon. Friend convey a message to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, that many of us place such reliance upon the Chancellor's unchallengeable integrity that we believe he will find it impossible to touch even one penny of this money until he has considerably increased the road programme?
