HC Deb 15 June 1950 vol 476 c32W
80. Mr. Astor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made in the negotiations between the Customs and glove manufacturers concerning the definition of industrial gloves for Purchase Tax purposes.

Mr. Jay

It has still not been found possible to devise a satisfactory definition for the purpose of exempting industrial gloves as such. Representations that the rate of tax on all sheepskin gloves should be reduced from 100 per cent. to 33⅓ per cent. have been received and are being considered. I cannot say at this stage what the result will be.
