HC Deb 26 March 1969 vol 780 cc309-10W
Mr. Hilton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will accept the recommendation of the Decimal Currency Board that equipment designed for working in decimal currency should be written off for tax purposes at the discretion of the purchaser.

Mr. Taverne

My right hon. Friend has considered the board's recommendation very carefully, but he does not feel that special treatment for this particular type of equipment is justified.
