§ 5. Mr. DAY
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent the duties have lately been raised on the importation of intoxicating liquors to the Gold Coast and Togoland; and whether he has any further information he can give the House with reference to increasing the fees payable for separate licences or reducing the hours of consumption.
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)
The duties on imported spirits were recently raised from 25s. to 27s. 6d. per gallon. A committee was appointed by the Governor to consider the question of the sale of spirits and has recently made various proposals. I am not aware whether these proposals have been carried into effect and I am in correspondence with the Governor on the subject.
