§ MR. HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If the Board of Inland Revenue has taken into consideration, as promised some time ago, the desirability of issuing single day and single week game licences, to facilitate the contribution to the Revenue of many hundreds who, having but an intermittent and brief opportunity for sport, are prompted by the high duty to evade the law?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
, in reply, said, the suggestion of his hon. Friend, and other suggestions for a modification of these licences, had not been neglected. But his hon. Friend would see that the licences did not stand in the same position as formerly, as the proceeds would no longer go into the Imperial Exchequer. They would have to be considered in connection with the views of the County Councils, to whom the licences would go. He was, consequently, unable to make any definite statement in regard to the matter.
