HC Deb 30 March 1949 vol 463 c122W
Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison

asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury whether he is prepared to allow a refund of the Purchase Tax charged to the Surplus Textile Corporation Limited on surplus textile goods imported from Malta and which were pilfered before arriving at destination, in view of the fact that the corporation is a non-profit making body set up to assist the Government.

Mr. Jay

I find that the demand for tax was made under a misapprehension which has now been cleared up. No payment was actually made.
