asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the gross amount of £1,403,697 collected as motor-car import duty in the year ended 31st March, 1923, was reduced by repayments to a net amount of £763,913; whether the repayments included sums repaid in respect of motor cars and parts thereof to be used as commercial vehicles exempted from duty; if so, what amount was repaid under that heading; and whether he can state the approximate annual cost to the State in salaries and expenses of dealing with claims for repayment of import duty in respect of exempted vehicles?
