§ Mr. AMMON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the serious hardship placed upon the owner-drivers of taxi-cabs who have cabs of French and Italian manufacture because of the 33⅓ per cent. import duty on spare parts and complete chassis; and whether he can abolish the said duty and place taxi-cabs in the same position as other commercial motor vehicles?
§ Sir R. HORNE
I am aware that representations have been made in the sense of the first part of the question. As regards the second part, I cannot anticipate my Budget statement.
