§ Mr. SUMMERBELL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has received 968W communications from hospitals and similar institutions suggesting a rebate of the duty on spirit used for the purpose of preparing medicines; and, if so, can he state what action, if any, he proposes to take in regard to the matter?
§ Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE
I have received some communication on this subject. I must refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on the 20th inst. to my hon. Friend the Member for Montrose Burghs.
