§ LORD TWEEDSMUIR
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the factory ships of the trawler fleets will qualify as manufacturing industry, and receive a premium on top of the rebate of their selective employment tax.
§ LORD CHAMPION
Factory ships of the trawler fleets are at present classified to Heading 003 of the Standard Industrial Classification; this is not a manufacturing heading. Further consideration will be given to the position of these ships under the selective employment tax proposals.
House adjourned for the Whitsun Recess at twenty-five minutes before nine o'clock.
