§ 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.
