§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ The Solicitor-General (Sir Patrick Mayhew)
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
This Bill is strict consolidation, bringing together the law relating to car tax. It was originally provided for in the Finance Act 1972, but there have been several amendments in subsequent Finance Acts and in other Acts and statutory instruments. The time is now ripe for consolidation.
