Written Answers. - VAT Returns.

213. Mr. Gilmore asked the Minister for Finance the total amount of VAT revenue in 1996 on all magazines and research periodicals. [21984/97]

[644] Minister for Finance (Mr. McCreevy): The position is that VAT returns are not completed in a manner which would enable the yield from particular goods or services to be identified. However, the net yield from the sales of magazines for 1996 is estimated at £4.3 million. This figure includes the estimated yield from research periodicals which cannot be isolated.
