HC Deb 13 April 1910 vol 16 c1244

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state what sum was paid into the Exchequer on and between 1st April, 1909, and 31st March, 1910, in respect of duty on spirits, and what sum was paid in respect of such duty during the corresponding period of 1908–9; whether the amount of duty on spirits during the financial year of 1909–10 is in excess of, or less than, the sum estimated in the Budget of 1909; and what the amount of such excess or deficit is?


As regards these two questions, I regret that, as I have explained before, I cannot give particulars of this nature in anticipation of the statement which I propose to make next week.
