HC Deb 03 July 1987 vol 118 c177W
Mr. Gardiner

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to take steps to ease the cash flow problems caused for many companies whose value added tax refunds are held up by the Civil Service strike; and whether he will allow them to use their monthly pay-as-you-earn payments to the Inland Revenue to make good the shortfall.

Mr. Norman Lamont

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