HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 c593W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether it is the intention of the Government, in removing restrictions, to make it possible to convey duty-free spirit, unmethylated, but to be used for industrial purposes, in tank wagons and by pipe line?


Clause 12 of the Finance Bill will make it possible to allow under suitable Regulations spirits made or intended to be made into any kind of methylated spirits to be conveyed by tank wagon or pipe line. There is, however, no provision in the Bill under which such methods of conveyance of spirits which are neither methylated nor intended for methylation could be permitted.
