§ 30. Sir BASIL PETO
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the only tobacco which is retailed at a price which includes the full amount of the new duty imposed of 8d. a pound is low-priced pipe tobacco; and whether he will consider allowing a drawback of the amount of the duty on all loose tobacco sold at below 8d. an ounce?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
As regards the first part of the question, I can add nothing to what was said yesterday by my right hon. Friend. I fear that it would be impracticable to adopt the suggestion contained in the second part of the question.
