HC Deb 04 December 1919 vol 122 c560
26. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Prime Minister whether the trade asked for the release on whisky to be removed or whether it was removed by the Government to enable American spirits to be sold and so secure a larger revenue for the Exchequer?


In answer to the first part of the question, the pressure for release did not emanate from the trade; the reply to the second part is in the negative.
