HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2348

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the amount of Excise charged upon chicory grown in this country and the Excise charged upon imported chicory; and what was the total revenue received last year both from home-grown and imported chicory?


As the answer is in tabular form, I am circulating it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The following table shows the present rates of duty on chicory and the revenue collected in the year ended 31st March, 1922:

Chicory. Rates of Duty. Revenue for year ended 31st March, 1922.
Home Grown: £
Raw or Kiln dried £1 1s. 1d. 4,969
per cwt.
Raw or Kiln dried £1 6s. 6d. 85,801
per cwt.
Roasted or ground 4d. per lb.

Empire-grown chicory is chargeable at five-sixths of the import- rates.
