§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what revenue is derived from Purchase Tax on vehicle tyres.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
Vehicle tyres are not chargeable with Purchase Tax. In the case of chargeable vehicles, the wholesale value on which the tax is charged of course includes an element in respect of the tyres; but it is not possible to give a separate figure for the tax indirectly derived in this way from tyres.
