§ Miss Maynard
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in the light of the fifth report from the Select Committee on Energy, he will introduce proposals to earmark receipts from petroleum revenue tax for energy conservation programmes.
§ Mr. Wakeham
[pursuant to his reply, 15 November 1982, c. 12]: The Government will be replying to the fifth report from the Select Committee on Energy before Christmas. It is not our policy to earmark individual taxes for specific purposes.
