HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 c50W
75. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government by how much he expects a £4,000 house to go up in price as a result of the 15 per cent. import duty and petrol tax.

Mr. Mellish

The import surcharge is likely to increase the cost of a house (exclusive of land) by less than 1 per cent. on average. I can give no reliable estimate of the effect on house prices of the increase in petrol tax.
