HC Deb 05 December 1950 vol 482 c37W
58. Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the serious situation which is being created in the leather goods trade by the heavy burden of Purchase Tax and the inevitable result that craftsmen are leaving the trade, he will consider abolishing Purchase Tax on these goods.

Mr. Gaitskell

This is a matter which with other similar representations will be considered when the tax is next reviewed.
