HC Deb 10 May 1960 vol 623 cc33-4W
62. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consideration he has given to the case made to him for treating go-karts in the matter of Purchase Tax on the same basis as racing cars and yachts, in view of the experience of youth organisations that the active sport of go-kart racing makes a healthy appeal to the adventurous in their leisure hours.

Mr. Amory

I have carefully considered the representations which have been received through my hon. Friend and other Members, but as I have explained in reply I do not feel able to recommend a reduction in the rate of tax on go-karts.
