§ 17. Mr. HUNT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the destitution and misery of millions of people in our country and of the increased and increasing price of the cost of living, he could see his way to taking off all the present taxation on imported tea and sugar and making up the revenue by import taxation on the kind of luxuries only bought by the rich?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
No, Sir. I regret that I do not see my way to achieving the end indicated by the hon. Member by the means that he suggests.
