HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 c116W
75. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether in view of the uncertainty arising from the proposed alteration in the Purchase Tax on furniture, which is adversely affecting production and the prospects of employment in the furniture trade, he will announce the date when details of the D Scheme will be published.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

My right hon. Friend hopes to make a further statement on this matter shortly.
