§ 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.
