HC Deb 13 July 1904 vol 137 c1481

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if all home made spirits, whether Irish whisky, Scotch whisky, blended whisky, patent spirits made in Scotland, Ireland, or England, are permitted as plain British spirit; if the nature of the contents of all casks in bonded warehouses are known to the Revenue officials; and, if so, will he consider the desirability of stating on the permits which are attached by the officials to all casks leaving bond what the contents actually are.


The Answer to the first paragraph of the hon. Member's Question is in the affirmative and to the second in the negative. Accordingly, the third point mentioned by him does not arise.
