HC Deb 06 March 1958 vol 583 c139W
7. Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in his forthcoming Budget, he will consider abolishing Purchase Tax and replacing it by a progressively increasing advertisement tax based upon a 5 per cent. tax for all monies spent on advertising up to £100 per annum and an additional cumulative 5 per cent. tax for every £100 above the first £100.

Mr. Simon

My right hon. Friend will consider any suggestions made to him, but I cannot anticipate his Budget.
