HC Deb 27 October 1953 vol 518 c342W
63. Mr. Porter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the request made to him by certain retail and wholesale traders, that any change in the operation of Purchase Tax, shall be arranged to operate as from the beginning of January in preference to the present post-Budget arrangement; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Yes, and I will certainly bear these representations carefully in mind in coming to a decision on this matter.
