HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 c81W
8. Mr. Woof

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will remove the tax on light hydrocarbons oils and other raw materials such as linseed oil and phthalic anhydride.

Mr. du Cann

As regards the duty on hydrocarbon oil, which is a revenue duty, I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget decisions. As regards commodities liable Ito protective import duty, that is a matter for my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade.
