MR. PIKE PEASE
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the total yield in revenue of the Sugar Tax for the calendar year ending 31st December, 1906; and when the Board of Trade Returns, giving the retail price of sugar in London, Paris, and Berlin, will be issued.
§ (Answered by Mr. Asquith.) The total receipts from the Sugar Duties (including Excise Duties on Saccharin and Glucose) for the calendar year 1906 were £6,545,255. I understand from my right hon. friend the President of the Board of Trade that, if any hon. Member wishes to move for a Return giving the information referred to in the Question, he will raise no objection to its issue.
