HC Deb 18 March 1958 vol 584 cc117-8W
Mr. Nabarro

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, with a view to encouraging greater hygiene and less waste in domestic kitchens, he will at an early date reduce or eliminate the Purchase Tax on refrigerators; and what was the revenue obtained from purchase tax on refrigerators for the last twelve months for which figures are available.

Mr. Amory

My hon. Friend will not expect me to anticipate my Budget statement. The annual revenue is about £5 million.
