HC Deb 21 April 1978 vol 948 c384W
Mr. Ovenden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement explaining the Government's attitude towards the recommendation of the Paper and Board Sector Working Party concerning the need to recognise in the taxation system the cyclic and capital-intensive nature of the industry and the effect of these factors on its profits.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I shall let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
