HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 c838W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is yet in a position to state whether and, if so, to what extent the annual yield of the Purchase Tax on medicines, including proprietary medicines, exceeds £2,500,000 per annum?

Captain Crookshank

Precise figures of the yield of the Purchase Tax on prepared drugs and medicines are not available, but I think it possible that the yield for a full financial year will be of the order of £3,000,000.
