HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1278

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.
