HC Deb 21 February 1929 vol 225 c1299
50. Colonel HOWARD-BURY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the cost of a rebate of 1d. a pint on all-British home-brewed ale?


I find that it is impossible to give any figure, as the cost would depend upon the proportion of the beer brewed in the future which would be entitled to the rebate. This is too speculative a basis for any estimate.
