HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 c168W
Mr. Scott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has for extra support for the British bloodstock and horse racing industry; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Gilbert

My right hon. Friend was unable to extend relief from VAT in his recent Budget, but in January of this year, following representations from the industry, the import duty was removed from imported bloodstock, other than geldings. Consideration is now being given to the need to extend the temporary importation arrangements for bloodstock.
