Mr. Hannam

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he still intends to seek powers in the Finance Bill to refund payments of value added tax both to Government Departments and health authorities on services which have been put out to private contractors in view of the provisions relating to value added tax contained in the resolution of 21 March, Votes and Proceedings, page 405.

Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

[pursuant to his reply, 28 March 1983, c. 67]: Yes. The amendment of the law resolution adopted by the House on 21 March provides for such powers being sought.
