HC Deb 02 July 1968 vol 767 c204W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the hardship caused to those people designated as disabled by a local authority and issued with a disabled driver's certificate to fix to a vehicle because they are denied any relief in the cost of a road fund licence, if he will take steps to provide exemption or a lower rate for such persons.

Mr. Harold Lever

Relief from Vehicle Excise Duty is already given to disabled people who qualify for help with the provision of transport under the National Health Service. I regret that the disabled driver certificate issued by local authorities would not be a suitable basis for Vehicle Excise Duty relief.
