HC Deb 12 December 1950 vol 482 c130W
50. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the desire of the people of this country to take delivery of a low-priced car to sell for £300, he will make concessions to various car manufacturers to enable them to produce for the home market this type of car, such a car to be free of purchase tax.

Mr. Gaitskell

No; I fear I could not agree to such a proposal in present circumstances.
