HC Deb 09 May 1933 vol 277 c1359

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the proposed duty on British sparkling wines will apply to wines made in country districts from vegetables such as sugar beet, potatoes, dandelions, and gooseberries?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

The duty applies to all British sparkling wines sent out from the premises of a licensed maker for sale, or from the premises of any person who has rendered still British wines sparkling. If my hon. Friend will send me particulars of any case in which there may be doubt I will have inquiries made and let him have a definite answer.


Do I understand that, if I send my right hon. Friend a sample of these wines, he will taste them and give me a definite answer?
