HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c341W
Mr. Peter Walker

asked the Minister of Power what is the estimate of the cost to the National Coal Board of the proposed new tax to be applied to lorries of three tens and above.

Mr. Freeson

This will depend upon the rate of tax, but on the basis that the annual charges on heavy goods vehicles owned by the National Coal Board averaged £100, the annual cost is estimated by the Board at £325,000.
