HC Deb 18 February 1926 vol 191 cc2164-5W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if any subsidized British-produced sugar has been sold abroad for foreign consumption; and whether, in that case, any regard is taken of the fact in respect; of the reduction of the excise duty?


There have been no exportations of subsidised British-produced sugar as such, but a small quantity has been exported in the form of confectionery, etc. In common with other sugar, subsidised sugar, if exported, is relieved from payment of duty.
