HC Deb 08 December 1966 vol 737 c361W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he will abolish or reduce the Purchase Tax on shinty sticks, in view of the discouragement to this game in the Highlands arising from the present high rate.

Mr. Diamond

No. I do not think it would be justifiable to treat shinty sticks more favourably than other types of sports equipment.
