HC Deb 31 May 1916 vol 82 c2731W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the expediency and justice of making an abatement of the proposed new taxes on motor cars in favour of officers of the Volunteer Training Corps who are using their own cars in the execution of their military duties while called up in protection companies on the lines of communication in England?


I am considering whether exemption from duty cannot be granted for cars which are used exclusively for such purposes as those indicated in the question. I do not think it would be practicable to make any concession in respect of cars which are used partly for such purposes and partly for other purposes.
