HC Deb 28 November 1928 vol 223 c431W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the average monthly yield of the Excise Duty on British wines for the period ended 31st March last at 1s. per gallon, and the average monthly yield at 1s. 6d. per gallon since the increased duty was imposed?


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.
