HC Deb 02 December 1958 vol 596 cc107-8W
65. Mr. Albu

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will have an examination made of the fuel-saving properties of the domestic heat pump with a view to a reconsideration of the present Purchase Tax on these appliances.

Mr. Amory

I am aware of the properties of the heat pump, but I do not think it would be right to single it out for a fiscal privilege over competitive kinds of electric heater or refrigerator.
