HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c87W
Mr. Tinn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consideration he has given to representations made to him by the hon. Member for Redcar and others concerning the road fund tax payable on tractors used to haul fishing boats; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Denzil Davies

I have decided to propose a concession for sea fishermen's tractors used for hauling boats on the public road. This will make them liable to the same rate of duty as farmers' tractors—£6.65 a year. A Government new clause will be drafted and tabled in time for discussion at Committee stage of the Finance Bill.
