§ 64. Mr. C. WHITE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much revenue the State has derived from the Excise Duty on home-grown sugar for the current financial year; and the rate per ton at which duty is levied?
§ Sir R. HORNE
The Revenue derived from the Excise Duty on home-grown 1212 sugar during the current financial year is approximately £88,000 to 31st January last. The rate at which the duty is levied per ton is five-sixths of £23 6s. 8d. on sugar polarising at over 980, and proportionate rates on sugar of lower polarisations.
