HC Deb 26 November 1968 vol 774 cc62-3W
36. Mr. Chapman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what study he has made of the scheme worked out by the Birmingham Post, details of which have been sent to him, for remission of Purchase Tax on motor cars bought by disabled drivers, as an alternative to a state-provided three-wheeled vehicle; and whether he will introduce some such change in order to meet the preferences of the disabled while making a net saving to the Exchequer.

Mr. Harold Lever

I have studied this suggestion with sympathy but, apart from other considerations, no scheme so far devised would result in a net saving to the Exchequer.
