§ 68. Mr. DOUGLAS HALL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the reduced hours during which public-houses are now open and the increased tax on beer, he can see his way to permit licence-holders, whose licences amount to less than £20, to pay the amount of licence in instalments?
§ Mr. ACLAND
I will consider the suggestion, the adoption of which would necessitate further legislation. I may remind the hon. Member that no liquor licence duties which are not already payable by instalments will become due before the end of May next.
