HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 c595
70. Sir Ernest Graham-Little

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider setting up an official inquiry into the present rate of allowance on power and industrial methylated spirits and unmethylated spirits used duty free in arts and manufacture, with a view to ascertaining the extent, if any, by which the allowance exceeds the costs incurred by distillers in order to comply with the restrictions imposed by law for the purposes of revenue control?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir John Simon)

I would refer to the answer given on 28th November to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Chatham (Captain Plugge).
