HC Deb 23 July 1913 vol 55 c2033
28. Mr. F. HALL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will state the revenue obtained in the years 1911 and 1912 from the increased Licence Duties charged under Section 43 of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910; and if he can state the reduction in the rateable value of licensed premises in England owing to the operation of the Section in question?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

The latest figures available relating to the yield of the increased Licence Duties are given in the Return of Liquor Licence Duties (House of Commons Paper, No. 217 of 1912), to which I would refer the hon. Member. As regards the second part of the question, I have no means of obtaining the required information.
