HC Deb 02 April 1968 vol 762 c52W
46. Mr. Kirk

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why details of the Purchase Tax changes, announced in his Budget statement of 19th March, were posted to retailers on 18th March, so that they could have been received some hours before he made his Budget statement.

Mr. Harold Lever

No such details were posted on 18th March, nor were they released prior to the announcement of the changes in my right hon. Friend's Budget Statement.
