HC Deb 12 June 1989 vol 154 cc271-2W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much revenue was accrued to the Exchequer from Wales, for the last year for which figures are available in(a) income tax, (b) corporation tax, (c) value added tax and (d) Customs and Excise duty.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Information is available only in respect of income tax.

In 1986–87, the income tax liabilities of residents of Wales were estimated to be about £1,500 million.

Dr. Marek

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will obtain a copy in English for his departmental library of the speech by Commissioner Scrivener with regard to the harmonisation of value added tax.

Mr. Lilley

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to Commissioner Scrivener's draft communication to the Council of 17 May. I am making arrangements for the final English version of the communication to be placed in the House Library as soon as it is available.
