asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he proposes to restore the special allowance of foreign currency for running expenses to persons who take their motorcars abroad on short visits.

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave the hon. Member for Shrewsbury (Mr. Langford-Holt) on 17th March.

But why is the allowance only to be restored from 1st May? Why should it not be restored for Easter?

Because 1st May is the beginning of the next year in these matters.
