HC Deb 22 February 1934 vol 286 c500
33. Mr. MARTIN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of revenue collected, or due to the Treasury to date, from the tax on hydrocarbon oils?


The total amount of revenue received from the duties on hydrocarbon oils from the first imposition of such a duty in 1928 up to 31st January, 1934, is approximately £142,479,000.


Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that he has achieved his declared objective of putting more miners back to work by the introduction of the oil tax?
