HC Deb 06 July 1909 vol 7 c1024

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he could state the yield from Ireland in the last financial year of the duty paid by on-licence holders and off-licence holders respectively; and the total amount expected from Ireland out of the estimated £2,600,000?


The amounts of Licence Duty paid in Ireland in the year ended 31st March, 1909, by on-licence holders and by off-licence holders were £143,000 and £24,000 respectively. As my right hon. Friend informed the hon. Member for East Tyrone in reply to a question on 3rd May, the Irish contribution to the estimated revenue from the additional Liquor Licence Duties will be approximately £104,000.
