HC Deb 28 February 1967 vol 742 c57W
36. Mr. Tilney

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will ask all registered charities to give him a return of the Christmas cards sold by them so that he can calculate the amount of money taken in tax from purchasers who wish to help such charities.

Mr. Diamond

No. I do not think that this would serve any useful purpose.

44. Mr. John Hall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received either from manufacturers or retailers of Christmas cards that unacceptable hardship would be caused by the abolition of Purchase Tax on Christmas cards sold by charitable organisations.

Mr. Diamond
