HC Deb 13 November 1911 vol 31 c30

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the words contained in Section 46 of the Finance Act, 1910, or other benefits obtained by such persons, are taken by the Commissioners of Customs and Excise to include in such benefits all commodities other than intoxicating liquors, such as cigars, mineral waters, and biscuits, etc., for which owners of tied houses may tie their tenants; and if so, whether any increased price charged by such owner of a tied house to a tied tenant beyond the full market price of such commodities will be taken into consideration by the Commissioners, together with any increase of rent or of the price of intoxicating liquor?


The answer to the first question is in the negative, and the second, consequently, does not arise.
