HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c195W
85. Mr. Bottomley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider reducing the Purchase Tax on children's reins, which assist in controlling young children in busy shopping areas and thereby make a contribution to road safety.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The rate of Purchase Tax on children's reins was reduced to 25 per cent. in this year's Finance Act. I regret that I cannot contemplate any further relief at present.
