HC Deb 26 March 1923 vol 162 c56W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimated duty paid upon a quart of beer at 7d. a quart; and the total loss to the Exchequer involved by a reduction of the duty by d. on the quart?


I am unable to give my hon. and gallant Friend any information as to the duty paid in respect of beer of which the original gravity is not stated. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer him to the reply given by the hon. Member for South Paddington (Captain Douglas King) to the hon. Member for the Moseley Division (Mr. Hannon) on the 6th March.
