§ 80 and 81. Mr. Paget
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how much Purchase Tax the present D Scheme is estimated to produce from leather footwear products in the United Kingdom;
(2) how much Purchase Tax was derived from leather footwear products in the United Kingdom in the financial year 1951–52.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
It was stated in reply to my right hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Leicester, South-East (Captain Waterhouse), that the yield of Purchase Tax from footwear of all kinds is expected to amount to about £3½ million under the D Scheme, as compared with about £3.3 million on the previous basis of taxation. I am afraid that the material on which these estimates were based does not permit a detailed analysis to be made as between the different kinds of footwear.
