§ MR. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he will reduce the six shilling licences for those who brew their own beer to two shillings and sixpence?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS)
The hon. Member attributes to me powers which I do not possess. I have no power to reduce rates of licence, and there is no intention of making any proposal on the subject during the present Sitting of Parliament.
