HC Deb 16 April 1948 vol 449 c99W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to remit Purchase Tax on replacements at present prices by owners of requisitioned wrought iron gates, who were compensated at scrap iron prices, as shown by the case of which he has received detailed particulars.

Sir S. Cripps

Wrought iron garden gates are not chargeable with Purchase Tax. If the hon. Member will let me know the source from which the particular gates in question are to be purchased, I will see that any misunderstanding is corrected.
