§ Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make proposals for a special tax on touring holiday caravans in order to help alleviate the problems caused by their excessive numbers in holiday areas.
§ Dr. Gilbert
No. Sales of such caravans are to be subject to VAT at the rate of 25 per cent. from 1st May while motor caravans will come within the scope of the car tax from the same date.
