HC Deb 07 June 1921 vol 142 cc1691-2
57. Colonel Sir A. HOLBROOK

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what revenue was received during the year ended 31st March, 1921, from the table water duty; and does the revenue compensate for the loss of Income Tax from the trade consequent on the reduction in the volume of business transacted?


The revenue derived from the table water duty in the year ended 31st March, 1921, was £1, 196,000. As regards the second part of the question I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Central Edinburgh on the 12th April last.
