HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c101W
60. Mr. Dodds

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made in respect to Purchase Tax reliefs on outsize garments, following discussions with the appropriate trade associations.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This matter has been carefully examined with the trade associations concerned; but it seems that no workable plan, that is not unduly complicated, can be devised for giving higher D relief to "outsize" garments; and I am afraid I am forced to the conclusion that such a refinement on the D scheme would not be practicable.
