Armorial Bearings Duty

Financial Statement – in the House of Commons on 25th April 1944.

Alert me about debates like this

The Finance Bill will contain the proposal which I have already announced in the House, to abolish from 1st January next the Armorial Bearings Duty and the Carriage Licence Duty. The administration of these Duties is cumbrous and results in a number of anomalies which are certainly not justified by their yield. The greater parts of the proceeds go to local authorities which have concurred in the proposal to abolish the Duties.
