§ 27. Mr. Peter Bradley
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will review the Inland Revenue's policy in respect of current tax demands to employers providing public transport for their work force. 
§ Dawn Primarolo
I am sure my hon. Friend welcomes the tax reliefs for green transport benefits announced in the Budget; these include exemptions for employer provided large works buses, and for subsidies to local public bus services, to get employees to and from work. These reliefs take effect from 6 April 1999. I am afraid there are no grounds for ignoring tax payable under the law applying to benefits for previous years.
