asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, seeing that in a, number of cases the owners of industrial hereditaments will pay more in Petrol Duty than they will receive in rate relief under the Local Government Bill, whether provision will be made for some rebate of the Petrol Duty in these cases?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The Petrol Duty was proposed as a general tax for reasons which were fully stated in the Budget speech. Its incidence is not related to the relief afforded in particular cases under the de-rating scheme, and no question arises of an adjustment such as the hon. Member has in mind.
