HC Deb 09 March 1903 vol 119 c107
SIR W. HART DYKE (Kent, Dartford)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that death duties have been charged and paid upon licensed property valued at from nineteen to twenty-five years' purchase upon the gross estimated rental, and that a few weeks afterwards notice has been given to surrender some of the very licences upon which the said duty had just been charged; and whether he can suggest any remedy for such a state of affairs.


The Estate Duty Office has no knowledge of any such cases as the right hon. Member refers to. But, if he will furnish particulars, inquiry shall be made.
