HC Deb 12 November 1951 vol 493 c15W
Mr. J. B. Hynd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when His Majesty's Government proposes to proceed with the abolition of the purchase tax.

Mr. R. A. Butler

In the circumstances explained to the House last week, I can see no early prospect of abolishing this tax. For the rest, I cannot anticipate Budget decisions.
