HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 c1378
56. Mr. BARR

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether a register showing the annual licence value of all fully-licensed premises and all beer-houses has been prepared, and is being kept corrected as provided by Section 44 of The Finance (1900–10) Act, 1910; and whether he will furnish a Return showing the estimated total annual licence value of such fully-licensed premises and beer-houses in England and Wales, and also in Scotland?


A register has been compiled of the annual licence values of hotels and restaurants and of public houses with an annual value of over £500, and this register is kept corrected. No register is in existence with regard to other licensed premises, and I am, therefore, unable to furnish the Return asked for in the last part, of the question.
