HC Deb 06 July 1910 vol 18 c1623

asked what would be the import duty paid to the Government out of £100 worth of raw tobacco used for manufacturing the tobacco smoked by working men and sold at 3½d. per ounce; and what would be the import duty on £100 worth of cigars sold at 2s. 6d. each?


As it is necessary to know the price per lb. of the raw tobacco used for making tobacco sold at 3½d. per ounce, and the weight of a 2s. 6d. cigar, the question, as worded by the hon. Member, does not contain sufficient data to enable the answer to be worked out.
