HC Deb 13 November 1970 vol 806 c289W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in his review of purchase tax, he will take into account the difficulties following the change-over to decimal coinage experienced by manufacturers of goods now paying purchase tax at the current rates.

Mr. Higgins

I am not aware of any special difficulties. A notice explaining how decimalisation will affect purchase tax accounting was issued by the Customs and Excise in September.
