§ 48. Captain STRICKLAND
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will state the revenue derived by means of customs and excise duties in the year 1934–35 from the different descriptions of oil which produced the total revenue of £42,323,000 mentioned in the Financial Statement, 1935–36; and whether he will, as far as practicable, distinguish between the receipts in respect of oil used for road vehicles and oil used for other purposes in each such description?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Duff Cooper)
My hon. and gallant Friend will find the information requested in the first part of his question in an answer which I gave on 14th May to the hon. and gallant Member for Blackpool (Captain Erskine-Bolst), of which I am sending him a copy. With regard to the second part of the question, I regret that no official information is available.
§ Captain STRICKLAND
Is it within the memory of the hon. Gentleman that, last year, a statement was made, giving that information; and will it be possible to have such a statement this year?
