HC Deb 24 April 1893 vol 11 c1024
MR. AIRD (Paddington, N.)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider the desirability of taxing soap, pills, and other advertisements which are in common use in the Metropolis, the railway stations, and even in rural districts into which our railways travel?


It is not in contemplation at present to make any change in regard to duties on railway station advertisements; and, if it were, it could hardly be confined to soap and pills.
