§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The average monthly yield of this duty for the year ended 31st March, last, at 1s. per gallon was £11,863, and the average for the five months from 1st June to 31st October last (payments in May having been partly at the old rate of duty) was £11,614. This figure, however, cannot properly be compared with the average for a complete year, as the larger proportion of the duty is received in the winter months. The average monthly receipts from June to October, 1927, were £9,048.
