HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c354W
Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has made to reallocate the finance now being paid to Scottish manufacturers under the Selective Employment Tax.

Mr. Harold Lever

The withdrawal of the extra amount in the S.E.T. premium from manufacturers outside development areas is one of the measures being taken to reduce public expenditure. Since the full premium will continue to be paid in development areas, most Scottish manufacturers will be unaffected by the change.
