HC Deb 09 February 1922 vol 150 c299
63. Sir P. GOFF

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, owing to the altered conditions to-day, he can see his way to reduce the Beer Tax, which at present is £5 a barrel compared with 7s. 9d. in 1914, and is the common consumption of 90 per cent. of our working men?


I am unable to anticipate the Budget proposals.
