HC Deb 06 April 1984 vol 57 c694W
Mr. Parry

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received concerning the proposed value added tax on building alterations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given on Thursday 5 April at column 1106 to a similar question by my hon. Friend the Member for Macclesfield. I have no statement to make at present but no doubt the proposed extension of the VAT base to cover building alterations will be fully debated during the Committee stage of the Finance Bill.
