HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 c562W
25. Mr. Jessel

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the current annual tax yield from vehicle excise tax; and by how much petrol tax per gallon would have to increase to raise the same amount.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

About £492 million in 1973–74, which would mean an increase of about 8½ on petrol and derv.
