HC Deb 13 February 1986 vol 91 cc537-8W
18. Mr. Ashley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received on the value added tax burden faced by charities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Brooke

Since April of last year my colleagues and I have received some 300 representations about the value added tax burden on charities. These have been carefully considered, but I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget statement.
