HC Deb 12 March 1900 vol 80 c587
CAPTAIN PHILLPOTTS (Devonshire, Torquay)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is his intention that the additional duty of 1s. per barrel on beer shall be of a temporary character as well as the additional duty of 6d. a gallon on spirits, and the rest of the indirect taxation proposed in the Budget.


If my hon. friend will look at the resolutions which have been passed, he will see that all this additional indirect taxation is on a temporary footing.
