HC Deb 18 April 1905 vol 145 c425
MR. DUNCAN (Yorkshire, W.R., Otley)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will grant tobacco manufacturers the power to claim the draw back on tobacco stalks when delivered to the bonded warehouse nearest their manufactories.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) Tobacco manufacturers may claim drawback on tobacco stalks—(a) When delivered to a Customs bonded warehouse for the purpose of being converted into sheepwash or of being denatured; (b) when delivered to a King's warehouse and abandoned to the Crown; (c) when shipped for exportation. I am considering how far it may be possible to provide by law for the deposit in bonded warehouses of tobacco stalks intended for exportation, and for payment of the drawback at the time of warehousing instead of after shipment as provided by The Manufactured Tobacco Act, 1863.
