EXPLANATORY NOTE.

This Order rectifies a textual defect in section 33 of the Finance Act, 1985 , the section which substituted scales of road tax rates based on engine cubic capacity (c.c.) for those based on road tax horse-power, from 1 October 1985. In that section the rate for private motor cars of twenty-one horse-power under the former system was omitted from the new scale of rates, an omission made good by this order.
