HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c231W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, since in the City of London 10 per cent. of the road vehicles, including all classes of lorries, have no Road Fund licence, he will estimate what revenue is being lost on a national basis of such evasion.

Mr. Higgins

I do not accept that the level of evasion is as high as 10 per cent. either in the City of London or generally.
