HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 c188W
58. Mr. Proctor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the desirability of Purchase Tax rebate, if he will consider a scheme which will alleviate the hardship to the trading community of a change in Purchase Tax rates.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This matter has been exhaustively examined with the trade associations concerned during the past few years, but I regret to say that so far no fair and workable solution to this difficult problem has been found.
