HC Deb 28 June 1926 vol 197 c829W

asked the Secretary for Mines if any royalties are paid on salt mined in Great Britain or on the pumping of brine from which salt is produced; and the amount of income from such royalties, if any, received in the last convenient year?

Colonel LANE FOX

Royalties are paid both on rock salt and on brine. I have no definite information as to the total amount of income from such royalties, but I am informed that for the financial year 1925–26 the net amount of such income (including wayleaves) for purposes of Mineral Bights Duty was approximately £27,000.
