HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 cc144-5W
61. Mr. W. F. Neill

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether Purchase Tax is paid on new motor cars exported to Eire; if the purchaser of a new motor car in Eire is obliged to sign the undertaking not to sell within six months; if he is aware that new motor cars exported from Britain are taken over the border into Northern Ireland, customs duty is paid and then the motor cars are sold at large profits; and does this customs duty include Purchase Tax.

Mr. Dalton

The answer to the first and second parts of the Question is "No, Sir," and to the third and fourth parts, "Yes, Sir." I am examining the matter further
