HC Deb 01 March 1956 vol 549 c147W
50. Mr. Albu

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider relating reductions in Purchase Tax on mass-produced consumer goods to the manufacturers' increases of exports over defined periods in order to provide an incentive to exports combined with the high utilisation of capacity necessary to keep costs down.

Mr. Brooke

No. I do not think it would be possible to frame a workable scheme on the lines suggested by the hon. Member, and I fear that it might well have ultimate effects the reverse of that intended.
