§ Mr. R. Morgan
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider reducing the Purchase Tax on sheepskin floor rugs from 100 per cent. to 33⅓ per cent., in view of the fact that they cannot be classed as furs and, on the present figure, they cannot compete with the carpet rug trade which only pays 33⅓ per cent.
§ Sir J. Anderson
I am afraid I cannot agree with my hon. Friend's view that sheepskin rugs are not fur skin rugs, and in any case I could not undertake to deal with these articles in isolation.
