HC Deb 09 July 1982 vol 27 c563 9.33 am
Mr. John Evans (Newton)

I am privileged to present a petition to the House on behalf of the officers and thousands of members of the National Union of Labour and Socialist Clubs. The petition points out that any increase in duty on beer to conform with EEC proposals for the harmonisation of duty on beer and wine would have telling and damaging effects on the brewing and leisure industries of our nation. The petition urges the Chancellor of the Exchequer not to take any action to increase the duty on British beer. And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray etc.

To lie upon the Table.
