§ 83. Mr. Crouch
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the yield of the Purchase Tax on wireless dry batteries for the financial years ended April, 1951, and April, 1952.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The yield of Purchase Tax on both wet and dry wireless batteries for the financial years ended 31st March, 1951, and 1952, was £1.3 million and £1.5 million respectively. I regret that particulars of the yield of tax from dry batteries alone are not available.
