HC Deb 13 May 1952 vol 500 c100W
86. Mr. Hardy

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, when he considers easing the petrol tax on London taxicabs, he will also consider relaxation of the tax on Manchester and Salford taxicabs.

Mr. R. A. Butler

My hon. Friend the Financial Secretary indicated in his speech in Committee on Clause 1 of the Finance Bill, that the London cab service cannot be considered in isolation. I am aware of the importance of the services to which the hon. Member refers.
