§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will continue to allow the Selective Employment Tax re-fund for those firms which can produce evidence of firm export orders at fixed prices; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Diamond:
As from the week be-ginning 1st April, 1968, manufacturers outside Development Areas will lose their entitlement to the additional sum in the Selective Employment Premium, but they will continue to be entitled to refund of the tax. Manufacturing establishments in Development Areas will still be en-titled to the full premium, that is refund of the tax plus the additional sum.
