HC Deb 30 October 1911 vol 30 c670W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that applications have been made to the Commissioners under Clause 46 of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910, to decide in what proportion the increased Licence Duty should be payable as between the licence-holder and the owner of the premises; and, seeing that in certain cases no decision has yet been obtained, although repeated applications have been made by both the parties interested, will he state what steps he proposes to take?


I am informed that in the few cases which have not yet been dealt with, the Commissioners will shortly be in a position to issue their determination. If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind, in which he thinks that undue delay has occurred, I will make inquiry.
