§ MR. CAINE (Barrow-in-Furness)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If he will lay upon the Table of the House, previous to the discussion of Clause 18 of the Local Government Bill, 976 a Return showing the revenue derived from licences on the sale of intoxicating liquors, and from the Inhabited House Duty, respectively, for each county in England and Wales?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
I could give the hon. Member the Return which he asks for with regard to existing counties. But, if he wants them for the counties as they will be constituted by the Local Government Bill, it would be possible to give the Return of the revenue derived from licences, as that has already been prepared; but the Return of the Inhabited House Duty could only be obtained with much trouble, and would require some time.
