HC Deb 02 August 1935 vol 304 c3004W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he can state the number of clubs in Wales and Mon-mouthshire paying duty in the year 1921, and also the number doing so in the last financial year?


The administrative areas of the Customs and Excise Department do not coincide with the geographical boundaries, and the special compilation of figures would therefore involve an amount of labour which I should not feel justified in authorising, particularly as detailed statistics of numbers of registered clubs are published in the Licensing Statistics.
