§ 51. Mr. Erroll
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the present yield from the taxation of white spirit; and to what extent does this tax raise the price of goods for export which are manufactured with white spirit.
§ Mr. Dalton
About £1½ million. A drawback is allowed on exports, the prices of which are not, therefore, raised by the tax.
§ Mr. Erroll
As regards internal consumption, is there by any chance any hope of the tax being reviewed?
