§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will provide an up-to-date list of changes which can be made by regulation in taxation and consumer credit facilities without legislation.
§ Mr. Higgins
The powers taken principally for demand management purposes are the Customs and Excise Regulator (Section 9 of the Finance Act, 1961 as amended by Section 8 of the Finance Act, 1964) and the Hire Purchase and Credit Sale Agreements (Control) Orders and Control of Hiring Orders made by the Board of Trade under the Emergency Laws (Re-enactments and Repeals) Act, 1964. There is, in addition, a range of powers for making administrative adjustments to the tax system.
