HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 c1637
MR. COURT HOPE (Sussex, Rye)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the value of nicotine washes for spraying fruit trees and the present high cost of such washes, he will take steps to remit the Excise Duty on all tobacco grown in the United Kingdom which is manufactured for horticultural or agricultural purposes.

(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) All nicotine is already manufactured from duty-free tobacco.
