§ Mr. ARMITAGE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can give the amount of duty collected on motor spirit and the amount of the rebate returned for the year 1911–12; and the cost of investigating the claims for rebate for the same period?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The duty collected on motor spirit for the year 1911–12 was £714,318. The rebate of duty amounted to £90,536. I am afraid I cannot give the cost of investigating the claims for rebate.
