HC Deb 16 December 1954 vol 535 c180W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what approaches he has received from the British Radio Valve Manufacturers' Association on the question of Purchase Tax on television cathode-ray tubes; the nature of the submissions made to him, his reply; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. H. Brooke

On 9th December my right hon. Friend received a letter from the Association asking that the tax be removed from cathode-ray tubes, and that he should discuss the matter with their representatives. I am arranging to do so on his behalf.
