HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 c1230
MR. BRANCH (Middlesex, Enfield)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the sale of mixtures of coffee and chicory with other ingredients in liquid form, under the name of coffee essences, and thus evading the duty of excise leviable on the same ingredients when sold in dry condition; and will he consider what steps should be taken to prevent the loss to the revenue arising from this evasion.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) I will consider my hon. friend's suggestion.
