§ Mr. SHERWELL
asked whether the proposed duties on motor cars and parts thereof are to include all industrial motor vehicles, public service motor vehicles, and agricultural motors; whether tyres and all accessories and components are included within the sphere of the proposed duties; if so, whether the term components is to be taken to include castings and forgings reaching this country in an unfinished state; and whether the proposed Petrol Tax of 3d. per gallon applies in full to trade and public service motors, or whether a rebate of 50 per cent. is to be granted to these latter in accordance with the precedent established when the Petrol Tax was first imposed in 1909?742W
§ Mr. McKENNA
The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the third that castings and forgings in an unfinished state, but intended when finished to be used as parts of motor cars, will be liable to the new duty. I am considering the other points raised in the question.
