HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1228W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware of the present seriously reduced earnings of the motor retail industry aggravated by the rationing of petrol; that owing to the Ministry of Supply finding itself, so far, unable to utilise the services of most of the personnel in this industry, the deterioration in the position of this trade will continue, with resultant unemployment and decreased revenue to the Exchequer; and whether he will review his decision in regard to the scale of taxation on motor cars?

Captain Crookshank

I have given this matter further consideration but regret that I have nothing to add to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend, the Member for Balham and Tooting (Mr. Doland) on 31st October.
