HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 cc32-3W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the hospital service is undercapitalised; and if he will consider proposing a specific earmarked tax for the purpose of building hospitals instead of renovating old ones.

Mr. Diamond

I do not think that it would be appropriate to earmark a specific tax for this purpose.
