HC Deb 20 June 1938 vol 337 c707
73. Mr. Chorlton

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the subsidy of 8¾d. per gallon paid to the manufacturers of power alcohol for special reasons, which no longer hold good, considering the large quantity made, will still continue when the Excise duty is modified to the extent as indicated in the Finance Bill; and, if so, what will be the reduction of the amount expected to be received?

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Euan Wallace)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 12th May to my hon. Friend the Member for South-West St. Pancras (Sir G. Mitcheson).
