HC Deb 19 February 1957 vol 565 c41W
60. Mr. Coldrick

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why Mr. Gardner of Bristol, who claims to have discovered a method of heating a house by solar heat at a cost of 2s. a week, has been told that he would be taxed on the savings he would make compared with the use of normal heating.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I cannot comment on the affairs of individual taxpayers, which are confidential.
