HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 c18W
66. Mr. H. Wilson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what considerations led him to propose that the reduced Purchase Tax on greetings cards, unlike that on other items, shall not take effect immediately but on a date which Parliament has hereafter to prescribe.

Mr. Amory

Taking into account previous trade representations, I wished to act in the best interests of the manufacturers concerned.
