HC Deb 07 March 1929 vol 226 c561
38. Lord FERMOY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the action of a Norwich firm of brewers in employing British barley only for brewing purposes; whether to encourage this policy, which is of value to agriculture, he will consider a rebate on the Excise Duty on all beer brewed from English hops, barley, and sugar; and whether he is willing to receive representations on this point?


As regards the first and second parts of the question, I would refer my Noble Friend to the answer which I gave on the 5th February last to my Noble Friend the Member for Southampton (Lord Apsley). As regards the last part, I am always ready to consider any representations that my Noble Friend may make to me.
