Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - Petrol Tax Yield.


asked the Minister for Finance the total amount of revenue collected from petrol tax for the year 1968-69 up to the latest date for which figures are available.

Separate figures for the amount of tax collected on petrol are not available. During the eleven months ended 28th February, 1969, however, the net receipts from the Customs and Excise duties on mineral hydrocarbon light oil, which is practically all petrol, were approximately £28,702,000.
