HC Deb 09 February 1968 vol 758 c243W
Mr. Ridsdale

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to relieve constructional engineers from paying Selective Employment Tax especially in those companies whose main work is in the export field, and who may use the United Kingdom as a base for their headquarters.

Mr. Diamond

Under Section 25 of the Finance Act, 1967, and with effect from September, 1967, constructional engineers are entitled to refund of Selective Employment Tax in respect of those of their staff who work overseas.
