To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the EC directives relevant to the charging of VAT on domestic fuel supplies; what are the current or future requirements of the legislation concerned with Community harmonisation of VAT liability or rate for these supplies; and what communication or indication he has received from the European Commission in respect of the obligations of Her Majesty's Government in respect of these commodities.

I regret that it has not been possible to provide a substantive answer before the summer recess. I shall write to the hon. Member shortly and place a copy of the letter in the Library.
