HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 c34W
61. Sir G. Fox

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an estimate of the number of heating appliances, electric kettles, cooking utensils and domestic refrigerators sold since the removal of the Purchase Tax and the estimated total kilo-wattage in each type, respectively; and whether he will consider reimposing the Purchase Tax to reduce public demand.

Mr. Dalton

This information is not readily available, and the hon. and gallant Member will not expect me to anticipate my Budget Statement.
