HC Deb 16 November 1914 vol 68 c245W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the financial loss inflicted upon licensed traders in the Metropolitan area by reason of the restriction of hours, it is under consideration, as a matter of equity, to relieve traders of any portion of the heavy License Duty and compensation charge now payable and based on assessments founded on trade under different circumstances?


The matter is under consideration.
