§ Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the reason for the difference of 2s. 8d. between the drawback of duty of 4s. 2d. granted on the exportation of British-made cigars and the Import Duty of 7s charged on foreign imported cigars?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Of the Import Duties on cigars 1s. was described as a "luxury tax" and was imposed by the legislation of 1898 and 1904. For the rest, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to him yesterday in this House.
